I need 2 of the top gaskets for HV carbs.

I am going to replace my ailing accelerator pumps with John Sweets viton.

Don't want to buy two kits, they were just rebuilt fairly recently.

They are for a 66 140.

Any help would be appreciated. thanks

In a pinch I have been able to reuse those gaskets. Just be careful removing them.

Ask John. He probably will sell them. I got them individually from him a few years ago..

In the meantime, I will look and see if I have extras.

I have taken the 60/63 top cover gaskets and used a hole punch to make the vent tube hole, works just fine.

Same with the early venturi gaskets that are missing the power valve hole. I have a lot of odd gaskets since the carb kits used to come with both gaskets in the box.

I hear ya on having to buy those gaskets. I made my own.
It took me a few hours but I used an old cereal box and it was free!

I had to buy the Viton cups online (less than John Sweets) since I couldn't make those but everything went together just fine.

Back on the road with pumps. Total cost $4.85!
