When i took my carbs off of my 1500 there was a piece of rubber under the carbs.

The rubber was dry rotted and it tore to pieces when i tried to move it to see all the vacuum hoses so i just took it out :in peices as it fell apart:.

My question is

Do i need the piece of rubber and what is it for?

I put it back together without it and have ridden it like that.I looked for it on the parts books but i cant find it.

So am i hurting anything or not?

I cant feel any difference in heat.

Under the carbs? Do you mean under the carb air filter basket? That gasket does rot out pretty bad. it is needed to keep sand out of your engine.

John,I thinkwhat he'stalking about is like a blanket under there . Its in pieces on my 93 , well pieces are all thats left . I too wonder its purpose . My thoughts are sound deadening,but it could be to hold heat . I hope some one comes along who knows for sure its purpose.

i would think it was to keep carbs from getting too hot, and throwing the vaccum off:?



i'd like to know also.
