    Intake Manifold Warped?

    Rebuilt the carbs and noticed the number two carb rocked back and forth when sitting on the manifold. I placed the manifold on a piece of glass. It is bowed up in the middle by .75mm. When I push down on the manifold the gap disappears and the the carb does not rock. Is this normal? Will this be ok once bolted onto the engine? Thanks

    I have never seen one bowed like this before. When you mount the carb if it pulls it down easy I would not worry too much about it. if it is extreme pressure to pull it down I would replace it.

    I bolted the number 2 carb on the manifold, no gaps. Then I bolted the manifold gasket and manifold with to the block/reeds, no gaps. Flattens right out by hand tightening the the manifold mounting bolts.

    Do you recommend using Permatex copper spay on the stock manifold and carb to manifold gaskets?

    Thanks for the help.
