Got the gaskets on the way.
I got silicone grease.
If water works best I’ll try that.
Got carburetor bath solution and spray.

Wondering if I had them right from the start, meaning will I need to adjust the carb jetting again. Not focused on that right now, one step at a time. I’ve got to get it right this time.

You now have time to review the various aspects of the fuel supply system including the carb tuning...

Check out the section on carb to manifold alignment.

You'll want to do the Idle Drop Method of adjustment for the best idle & transfer operation - AFTER the new seals are in place & leak-free.

Then check the plug burns for mid-throttle and WOT operation...
