    super E

    putting my carb back on. rebuilt it.question is the o-ring that goe's on the back of the carb that goe's between the carb and the insulator block.when i put it on it sets down in the groove and it looks like it sits down too deep in the groove. i don't see how it's gonna seal. anyone ran across this before?

    on my '77, I put just a skim layer of silcone on - just enough to say there is some on it.

    Floyd, It seals just fine. Never had one leak, and I've worked on a lot of S&S carbs...


    Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.
