carb gasket material? Kit didn\'t come w/ one>

My Sorensen carb rebuild kit for my Carter BBD didn't come with the gaskets for the venturi assembly.

I destrroyed one of the gaskets when they came apart and now have no gasket to go back together with.

Do I use some sort of gasket paper, or can I use an RTV type adhesive(safe for fuel naturally) and make my own?

Also, son't suppose anyone has a pic of the upper gasket in question, mine came off in many pieces and I can't really piece it back together.

Thanks,

Mike

you can get a pack of gasket stuff at any autoparts store, it has black paper, cork, brown paper, several sheets in one pack.

Is this the gasket you're talking about? #25 in pic.

#23

it's #23. #25 was salvageable as I didn't tear it up.

Is #23 super critical, or can I make my best guess on the internal opening and cut it out with an Xacto knife?

Also, I drilled out the pop-rivets on the electric choke assembly to separate it so I could remove it from the baseplate and soak the baseplate in my can of carb cleaner. Is the bi-metallic spring supposed to have pre-load on it when I reinstall the outer housing?

I know what the orientation of the two halves is to each other(took plenty of digital pics, sure makes it easier than sketching everything like I've done in the past), but I can;t recall if there was tension. I do not think there was, but am not sure.

Finally, what is the mode of operation of the bi-metallic strip coil?

Does it contract and pull the choke plate open or closed?

Thanks, you've been a great help to me over the last few days. I'm hoping rebuilding the carb will fix my non-running problem of a few days ago you were helping me with.

Mike

Re: #23

You should be able to trace out the opening with an exacto blade holding the gasket material to the part.

As far as the choke goes, you got me! Never taken one apart before.
