when taking close up pics with a digital camera set the camera to the macro setting. It usually has a little flower icon, try that and repost the pic.

hi,

i'm pretty familiar with the os engines.... the part that is torn/chipped is the insulator for the carbs... it's there to prevent vapour lock... it works by preventing the heat from the engine to reach the carbs. act as a thermal insulator... they sell just the insulator alone and it shouldn't cost more than $10.... i suppose your local os dealer will have them... i think you should have them replace as i can't be certain that the pinch bolt have a proper fit to it, or the seal between the carb and the crankcase is messed up...

2 cents...
