I have duel 40 webers on a two liter, and I have been using these intake gaskets. http://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ACC%2DC10%2D5462 I have to change them out about every 5 months. They just seem to not last. Is there anything out there better?

Thanks,
Jon

Are they torqued down properly? What are they doing? I had problem with one of them and apparently the PO had stripped the one of the stud. I ended up having to retapped and replaced with another size stud.

So if they aren't torqued down properly, after a while it will leak.

you can use the gaskets from an injected engine:

wouldn't that mess up the heating of the carbs using the plastic spacer?
