Picked it up from the mechanic after getting new engine installed (304 rebuilt). Started but idled badly, have a leak in the gaskets under carb. Was told just to keep goosing it. Turned onto main road (Phx. AZ) and forgot how hard it is to stop without power breaks. Also not having driven a 3 spd. manual in 25 yrs didn't help. Thought I would drive 30 miles and back for a deal on some used tires. Stalled in traffic 2 miles from home. Tried to push it around the corner (uphill). Brand new Jeep drove around me on the right (sidewalk) hooked me up with a tow strap. Called my wife, she came with my truck and we towed it home. Towed it to get the tires. Oh well. Hoping to drive it on the beach in Mexico with 12 of my buddies in 2 wks. Can someone tell me the gasket arrangement between the bottom of the carb (mc2100) and the manifold?

I don't want to sound like an *** but if you picked it up from the mechanic....after a rebuild to the motor, and the motor is leaking, have the mechanic fix piss pour work. Just my opinion

Another reason why I never use a "mechanic"

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Re-plumber in my on board air after blowing the bottom out on my oil separator.
As far as I could figure, running without a tank and filling up the tires, fooled the check valve into closing, and kept the pressure from tripping the switch to shut it off.
Something had to give and it was my separator. Removed the check valve, put in a new separator, and everything seems hunky dory now.

It only took me two weeks to get it put in and working.

I am hoping to get this tank soon:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-GALLON-ALU...a1aebe&vxp=mtr

The tank now is about a foot shorter. Putting a tank or even a small accumulator will stop those hard spikes on and off to your reliefs and switches. You could even use a long length of larger hose (10' or so) wrapped or weaved somewhere that would help absorb some of that spike. I have a valve that isolates the tank if it gets damaged and when testing, I noticed the different way in wich the system as a whole reacted.

I have a 7 gallon tank behind the rear seat that can be removed to be used away from the vehicle.

I'm going to plumb up to put in a quick disconnect tank I can add if needed. For 99% I will be using it for airing up tires , I don't want to give up the space.
It actually works nice with no tank for airing up. At 1200 rpm it runs constantly while you are filling them, and simply shuts down whenever you stop.
