1908 Holley single carb gasket question

Post by 61 Waycrosscomet »

Hopefully easy question to answer,
Is there suppose to be a gasket on the top of the carb between it and the bottom of the air filter housing assembly?
my shop manual doesn't show one, but thought i would ask here. (1961 comet. 144 engine.)

I don't think on the carb, there may be one on the air cleaner like a big O-ring but I haven't seen my original air cleaner in years (even though I think I know where it is).

I really don't think it would make too much difference anyway even if it didn't have a gasket there.

It would be simple to make. & with the news of the big amazon warehouse fire,,,who knows how long it would take?
