One post suggested blocking the vacuum port to the chock assembly. (see pic below)
I'm wondering if the difference in gaskets relates to this vac port......?
The gasket they test on looks just like the old style gaskets from the early 70's AMC v8's like Steve has. I looks like they make them by tracing a template based off the old style.
The one they make and the factory one both cover up the base of the carb completely and have the same cut outs. Both over the choke vac source the same
The problem with running just the gasket that they make is the fuel in the carb can boil from the engine heat. The AMC's and Ford's used a spacer / isolator plate between the manifold and the carb to keep the heat away. With the AMC its 3 separate parts.
Just hope they have another 2150 core they can rebuild that will run.
I just cant get past the fact that its all factory and should work. It not like I am piecing together different parts.. Should run with what it came from the factory with..
It doesn't make sense.... They found no vac leaks, no problems and the only difference is less that 1/2 a inch in height...
