Default Sealing motor & carb !

Hello everyone,

I have decided that this rebuild I am going to go through my motor and seal up everything tight.I have a V-Spec with a stock carb.The motor is sealed good but when I got to the carb I found a huge leak on the head side.After I resealed the carb that leak was gone.Shoot I have another leak it is located in the slide shaft for the throttle,underneath the boot.The main question I have is how do I fix this leak since I can`t really use any sealer there because it moves in and out opening and closing the venturi ???Please help

I wouldn't worry about the leak around the slide valve (or a rotary barrel as well for other carbs). The only thing you need to worry about are leak below the carb. Any air pulled in through the slide is still going through the carb so it is much less of an issue than a leak anywhere else. The only places I ever seal my motors are around the fuel nipple on the carb, and the base of the carb. It's seldom that the backplate needs to be sealed, but I always do it if I ever remove it. You should also always use new head shims if you remove it as well.

Folks ,when you remove your carb to re seal it make sure you also reseal the sinch bolt that holds it tight ,both sides!
Also if the carb slide is loose in any way ,it will eventually cause engine tune troubles and possibly stick, BAD! It will also suck in fine dust and burn up your mill . So keep things sealed and filters maintained for many gallons of fun !
