    Reusing manifold gasket...

    I see I can reuse the manifold gasket when reinstalling the carbs if I coat it with waterproof grease? Not to over complicate things, but the gasket has spongy material on it. Do I just spread the grease around those? Am I coating both sides of the gasket?

    Thanks!
