So, I took the advice from the group and made more gaskets for my carbs.

The leak was between the intake manifold and the TT adaptor plate for  
my HS6's.

Seen here,

I could see old fuel stains. I removed the carbs, then the TT plates,  
cleaned everything up and set about making some new gaskets.

I used my ported intake as it was handy on my bench.

Once the new ones were fabbed up, I check my clearances with the  
fitted carbs and TT plates.

This time I also used some locktite to secure everything.

Question, I used a thin cork for this new gasket, when I finally fit  
the new intake and a heat shield, should make yet another set of  
gaskets between the plate and shield. Should I use a thinner material?

Oh the results. She started right up, almost no choke and idled at 1K  
very nicely. Before that there was lots of choke, she was surging up  
and down and if you blipped the gas she'd die. Oh and nothing below  
1500 would last long.

I will re-check the carbs and do another balance job for good measure.
