_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
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 email@example.com.
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.
