It could not get a vac signal to open the secondarys. I replaced with the proper gasket and proceeded to my "test track", where on my first pass I twisted the end off of the driveshaft.
They have done it once, maybe they did it a second time?
Heh Thanks for the Reply 1 OwnerT....
Good point. I also had bought the Kit with the removable Diapharam top. This lets you remove the top cover to change springs with out removing the choke and Vacuum diaphram assembly.
Of course to install this cover you have to remove the vacuum diaphram. In the kit is a brand new cork gasket. It is mounted on an adhisive backing ..and you peel if off and install it on the chamber.
Now ..I can see how this happen to you as you must remove the center piece of cork from the ring before mounting or sticking it on to the chamber.
So..when they built yours ..someone forgot to remover the center!!!
So....Good call ..but I did install it and I know I removed the center piece.
