I used the Permashield and noticed the gaskets split when I tightened everything up. Might make thicker gaskets then use the permashield.

So, are the rubber mounts necessary?

Hard mounts

I use only hard mounts on my race cars. Alfaholics sells them.
But do not use the rubber o-rings against the carbs, use the thicker paper gaskets (Centerline).

Use a slightly smaller diameter o-ring in the manifold side of the mount. The mount should not be held away from the manifold surface by too thick o-rings.

Ignore the miths that vibration causes fuel mix problems. Just blather perpetrated by word of mouth from the un-knowing.

Huh. Well, that's a dilly of a pickle.

Starting fluid is pretty volatile, any chance it's getting sucked into the carb intakes rather than finding leaks? Maybe try liquid spray carb cleaner and see if you get the same results? That's what I use.

I realize I'm reaching here...

You are exactly right. Starting fluid is one of the worst things you can use for that purpose.

Carb cleaner, brake cleaner, windex!!
These^^ will PINPOINT the leak.

Here is starting fluids intended purpose. Aussie version.

I...can’t believe that’s a actual product.

The only way that could be more Australian is if Paul Hogan delivered it via kangaroo.

Thank you all for the support and humor. Brake cleaner sounds like the preferred product.

Windex, or just a spray-bottle with water usually works for me.

Brakeclean is fun because if (when) it happens to ignite, it goes out quickly, but does does give you a nice shot of adrenaline as you hunt for carb air leaks.

I found out those exact things when spraying for an intake leak on my daughter's Dodge 5.9. Turns out she also had an arcing plug wire at the cap. Boom, adrenaline, flame out, laugh..........trip to parts store.
