I would start by putting on some new intake rubber bands. Then reseat the manifold to the heads. Is your carb supported with a brace to the engine?

The manifold is usually steel or aluminum. It might help to say what carb you have; this might explain why there is a rubber manifold, or rubber connection between the carb and the manifold.

If it is a clamped rubber connection between the carb and manifold they often crack.
The carb MUST be supported, at the air filter backing plate is best.
