    There is a heat insolator under the carberator. My carberator rebuild kit came with two gaskets. They are not cut to seperate the primary and secondary chambers. The lower gasket between the manifold and the plate would be fine. My question is, between the card and the plate I should have a gasket with two holes to seperate the chambers? The old gaskets had two holes.
    Correct??

    Thanks, Jim

    1985 FJ60 still on blocks in the garage. I think she hates me.

    I read on here awhile back not to use any gaskets. I didn't use any when I put my carb back on it and it worked fine. Make sure the manifold is clean where it mates and use just the insulator. It has kinda of a rubber matterial on both side. If it is in bad shape then replace the insulator.

    Looking at the bottom of the carberator and I would say that I need the gasket cut to have the two holes. There is a vacuum port hole and I beleave it would need to be sealed from both bores as the bores should be sealed from each other?

    My insolator bases are not the best so I thing I should use the gaskets. I just cut me a new one to match the old two hole gasket.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Jim
