    Carb to intake gasket

    Do you all put any spray tack or anything on your carb to intake gaskets?

    I clean both surfaces extremely well, apply a little lithium grease and install. Torque to proper specifications.

    I have never heard of using grease for gaskets,but if you guys say so,I will believe it.

    I judt got done going through the carbs on an SL1050 I just picked up,and when I was puling the carbs,there was gobs of grease everywhere....and I mean gobs. I can understand a thin film to hold gaskets in place,but I think the previous owner went way overboard.

    I reinstalled with a very thin film of black Dow 732
