Default Site that explains method on sealing up a carb

For my next vehicle whenever I get it, I want to make sure that I properly seal up the carb and engine so I don't get any air leaks.

Is there a site explaining what you need to buy exactly and how to do it anywhere? Or if someone can give me that rundown that would be great as well.

First, get some Racer's Choice Air Seal.
http://www.rccompound.com/Tools-Misc...duct_info.html

Clean the outside of the engine, carb, etc. with something like Nitro Force cleaner. You want all the dirt and oil removed.

Use a toothpick to apply the Air Seal (use a liberal amount) where the backplate meets the crankcase, the carb retainer bolt (both sides), all around the fuel inlet (including both sides of the "banjo" that the fuel line connects to, and where it meets the carb body), and where the carb meets the crankcase. Some also seal the high speed needle. That should do it. You might also consider where the carb boot meets the carb body, but I don't do that.

Be sure to let it dry for a few hours before use.
