1) There is a nickel colored plate of metal that was inside one of the float bowls. It has a very odd fastener head (in-law called it a "figure 8" fastener). What is this called? And what is behind it? Anything that i shouldn't be messing with?

2) Anyone see a good link/writeup on rebuilding these? I see borders has a Holley Model XXXX rebuild manual, but id rather not make the 40 minute drive tonight to get that. Or any tips for me? Anything helps when its your first time

Can you post a pic of this?

Be sure to keep the old gaskets to match up with the new ones in the kit.
