Default RE: Saito 72 carb

The Saito 72 has a problem with leaking at the manifold to head joint. While you are moving the carb would be a good time to put a little silicone around the manifold pipe's outside gasket area before you stick it back in the hole. Don't get any silicone inside the pipe.

Also, while you have the carb out of the way, is a good time to snug up the backplate retaining bolts.
