Look What I found
Took the carbs off today, to install the V- force reeds, and found that the rear carb had no base gasket. I had seen leakage on the intake before and it is still there, as in the pic. Guess Im lucky I didnt have a melt down. Could this be the reason for the slow take off? Or the reason the pipe mod didnt work out? Also the intake looks as if it has been maybe ported. The metal has been ground down alot.

No gasket will usually lead to a leak. May have some contribution to a slow take off.
As for the "port" it just looks like someone tried to smooth it out a little bit.

Have you pulled the heads at all to look at the wash lately?

That's how they are on the Polaris Domestic intake manifold.

Pulled the heads to check the wash, Pistons were pretty black, will post the pics later. Found another problem installing the new reeds. A few of the bolt holes on the engine were stripped, that the intake bolts to. Guess thats the reason that somebody put silicone on the gaskets. Looks like I can get longer bolts and put a lock nut on the back side on the holes that are stripped.

can't believe the rear carb didn't have a gasket,is it stuck to the carb bottom???i had the bolt hole strip before,had to cut a long nut at an angle to sit behind it correctly,or just helicoil the thing autozone has what you need.would definately give you tuning issues.talk about lean!!!!!!
