I've had success with oil wipe on shaft near carb body, brake clean body
adjacent shaft with Q tip/brake cleaner, and with popsicle stick-black hi temp
The oil allows the rtv not to stick to the shaft, but only to the carb body-and
it seals the intake air leak just as rtv would do on an American V-8 intake
Always a good trick to get home on a trip or for a club drive or a few until
Sherman D Taffel
TR4, E-V12Jag, Jensen GT's- all with Stromberg CD or CD2 carbs!
Black RTV Also solves bowl plug leaks on CD2's -so you don,t have to chance
snapping plug ears when O rings leak! If you can gently pry out plastic plugs-5
wraps@ of teflon tape will hold for 5-6 years!
Always carry Ttape. +RTV
