Hi
About to install an original solex double barrel carb.
Does the adapter plate have a gasket on top and underneath, only 1 came in the service kit and looks like the bottom just had sealer before?
Also can anyone post some pics of the same install for reference?

Yes, gasket on both sides. I can stick one in the post? What pics do you need?

Don't over-tighten the nuts, many 32TDIDs have been ruined this way.

thanks Melle, if both gaskets are the same I can cut one from gasket paper, is that the case? I have 4 studs and nuts so will be careful then. Images were really around the linkage as I have some bits to make something so anything helps

Useful thanks. I now have another issue in that I seem to be missing a seal (item 75 on the image link), order something that oi thought might do it but no good, what I really need are dimensions of what I need to find one, can anyone help?
