A trick to help later with the carb, should it ever need a rebuild again, spray all the gaskets with WD40 before assembling it. and remember to spray WD40 in the pump bore before assembling it.
someone has taken my idea !!!!! hahah im glad someone else does this, i use marvel mystery oil on he gaskets and the ACC pump, the thicker base gaskets on the quadrajets get a very very very light smear of grease.

the reason is when i hook them up ( mainly the 1406 ) if i need to take them apart to change jets and such the gaskets wont get stuck and tear, and i bought a ebay kit for the 1406 and it was piss poor quality, the gaskets tore everytime i removed them.....
