Hello folks!

While putting on the carb, and tightening the bolts, I noticed that the throttle linkages were sticking. Loosening the bolts helped, but then of course I have the proverbial evil vacuum leak. So, either my carb is warped, or the intake is. (or both are) Question is, which one is more likely to be in need of a straightening out? Somehow I have a feeling they both are...thing is, is everything moved freely before I took it apart, although upon removal I did clean up a bunch of blue silicone, that I am guessing was used to...plug a leak. Should I try to make a gasket with soft gasket material (cork maybe?) or would I be wasting time?

Thanks for your help...I am itching to take it for a spin and dust it off.
