    Carb gasket question

    I took my carbs off to send to Bill and the gasket was all 1 piece across all 3 carbs. When I look at the OEM carb gaskets, they come in individual pieces for each carb. Where are the single piece gaskets available and which is better....the individual pieces or the single piece for all 3 carbs.

    Thanks

    Which gasket are you talking about? Between the carbs and the manifold, or the manifold and case?

    I always use the three individual gaskets. I think they seal better, and you can replace one at a time if needed.

    sorry. My bad.... I did leave the carbs on the manifold and ship them whole.... so to correct my previous stmt... between the manifold and the engine... I guess that is 1 piece OEM huh? Thats what happens when I am out here in California and my ski is back home in Indiana.
