_I suspect the current installed gaskets are either the wrong gaskets, installed improperly or are missing a metal shim according to a few diagrams. Would anyone know the correct part #'s or their replacements? It is the original Carter carb. Thanks in advance. Joe

You want no vacuum leaks from any of the carb hose connections
Check the vacuum advance diagram for leaking air and that the pvc valve is clean and rattling and a tight fit

Your welcome
Enjoy your better running car with the correct gasket sequence

The 60034 is the Carter AFB Gasket. It takes one above and one below the carb to manifold insulator. (The 6770 is the Rochester 4GC gasket.. it also takes one above and one below the insulator).  Both are a thick paper material. The Carter AFB will not idle correctly without the shim. (see note from the shop manual below). 
I currently have one 60034 Carter AFB gasket new in the package for $5. I have the shim for $15. I can ship the one gasket and ship 2 to 3 day Priority to US destinations for $7 for a total of $22. If you need the 2 gaskets, I should have more in by mid week. Shoot me an email to jasonedge@nc.rr.com.

Thanks much. I found 2 replacement part #'s though. 1) Felpro 9770and Felpro 60034are they both paper or metal impregnated. thanks again.

I have the tin plate, but I am on a vacation for a week. the gaskets are the same btw.

The tin plate is there to keep the exh gas off of the base of the carb.  The carb has 2 holes drilled into the base of the carb, so it will nit idle without the tin plate.

Thank you so much Tony and Ginny.I've since found his diagram. So there are actually four pieces in between carb and intake? would you have any suggestion on where I could locater a shim? Can you also recall if the both gaskets above and below spacer are the same part #'s? Thanks again. Joe

You do need the the metal sim for the Carter carb to perform correctly
The carb can get overheated if the shim is not present as it is a heat shield and can cause problems with correct fuel delivery
The fact that hot exhaust gases run thru the intake in our year cars is what causes the carb heat issue that requires the metal shim

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments



I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…


7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
