HOW TO: Install 69447K manifold gasket 6-pack

Note: Picture to be used for reference only. Carburetor models may vary.

Note: Please read the WARNINGS below.

PARTS REPLACEMENT

A) Unbolt and remove the carburetor from the intake manifold. Remove all traces of the old gasket and clean the mounting surfaces on both the carburetor and manifold. Verify that the mounting surface of the intake manifold (and any spacers or adapters) are completely flat. And inspect the carburetor mounting studs to insure they are straight. New studs, lock washers and nuts are available from your Genuine Stromberg dealer (kit 89067K-3).

WARNING: Do not allow gasket or other materials to fall into the intake manifold. 

B) Place the new carburetor manifold gasket (6)  in the correct position on the intake studs. NOTE: Use the gasket dry. Do not use any cement, glue or RTV sealant. Place carburetor on top of the gasket on the studs. Install lock washers, then nuts. Tighten nuts in a progressive manner to a recommended 15 ft./lbs. of torque.

CAUTION. Do not over-tighten the mounting nuts or bolts. Over-tightening can result in damage to the manifold, studs or carburetor base.

These instructions, warnings, cautions, and notes are limited to replacement of the parts named in the Service Kit. Stromberg has separate instructions for carburetor rebuilding, installation and set­up.

WARNING: Before working on any carburetor, it should be removed from the car and dried of any fuel as gasoline and gasoline vapors are very flammable. Never smoke, use an open flame, or produce any sparks where gasoline or gasoline vapors could be present. Doing so may cause a fire or explosion, resulting in property damage, serious personal injury, or even death.

WARNING: Always perform any work on the fuel system in a well ventilated area. Failure to do so may result in the build up of dangerous gasoline or other combustible vapors that may cause severe respiratory injury, or a fire or explosion, resulting in property damage, serious personal injury, or death.

 

WARNING: A thorough knowledge of carburetor function and repair is required. Therefore, Stromberg recommends that rebuilding and installation be performed only by a professional auto mechanic. An improperly rebuilt or installed carburetor may cause poor performance or lead to property damage, personal injury, or death, and may void your warranty.

WARNING! When replacing the carburetor onto the engine, always ensure you have connected all of the linkages – throttle, choke, accelerator pump – and fuel lines correctly. Manually operate the throttle lever and choke mechanism to ensure free movement. Any sticking, binding, or ‘over-center’ movement in the linkage could result in uncontrolled engine speed, property damage, serious personal injury, or death.

WARRANTY
While the individual parts in this Service Kit are covered by the Stromberg Carburetor Limited Warranty, the use of this Service Kit does not guarantee that the rebuilt carburetor will deliver correct performance and economy.
