Questions & Answers
Questions: Is this a single use gasket? (I.e. should it be replaced any time the carb is unbolted off the engine?) Also does it matter which way it goes on as long as the V is facing down down? (I.e. there is not “left” and “right” orientation)
Question By: Paul Woods on Jan 4 2022 11:53 AM
As long as in good condition you can use multiple times. The V goes down into the intake.

Questions: What is the purpose of the metal V? Does this get installed mounted up or pointing down? Do you need another gasket for mounting the carburetor?
Question By: Roy Puller on Jan 21 2018 4:43 PM
Pointed down. It put a 'spin' on the fuel air mixture. Another gasket is not necessary.
