Hi guys



Having had the cards balanced last week , the inlet manifolds had chrome covers on them that where held on by the vacume screws and found to be letting by.

Are these covers ment to be held in place by these screws ,as l will be placeing them back on over the weekend ???:?

Yes they are. I put a little dab of silicone near the head to make sure they seal with the chrome in between.

HI goldwingnut

thanks for reply . thats how the PO had them but the chat that servived the carbs said its not the best way to hold them on. when taken off there was silicone on the screws.
so back on they go as before.

I have the chrome covers over the intake manifolds of my 1983 GL 1100A.
The screws should have a small washer on each. The washer is not a regular steel washer but looks like it was punched out of a sheet of metal. I think it is softer than steel and makes a good seal under the screw head.
I placed the washers under the chrome cover for sealing the vacuum port. Seems to work well with no vacuum leaks.
