  • Question about o rings on intake manifolds

    My kitty runs perfect when cold, but when warm, shows signs of an intake leak. After some hunting around,I found that when I sprayed carb cleaner at the junction where those metal flanges ( the ones that connect to the carb boots) meet the head, the idle would rise.
    So, Iím assuming the o rings in them are shot.
    I ordered some new orings.
    When I get them, should I use any rtv or just put them in by themselves ?

      new ones should be nice and round, the old ones are likely pancaked thin.
