    Default E4ME air horn gasket

    Anybody know where I can get an E4ME air horn gasket? Looks like I need to replace my TPS, and while I'm in there I might as well change the gasket as it appears to be leaking (see photos of wet gasket). Thanks!

    Ask Cliff Ruggles for a few! He also has a thicker one if you need to open and alter thing inside the carb alot.

    I have an Edelbrock Performer intake on the engine, and I'm wondering if this base gasket look like the normal thickness, or does this seem thicker than normal? Thanks.

    I just dug up the records I have on my 'vette. Looks like the carb was rebuilt and a new TPS was put in 12 years ago, and 12k miles. I wonder if the modern gas has caused an issue?

    I found this kit on eBay. My carb is a 17081222. Does this look like a good kit to get?

    Also, I need special fuel line wrenches to disconnect the fuel line at the back of the carb, correct? Anybody know what size? Thanks.

    No way to see in a picture if the kit is good or not. Judging by the price don't expect to much from it. If you like to do it right the first time around then there're better kits for the job. Fuel line is a normal wrench. 7/8 and 1" if I'm correct.

    Greetings Peter
