    air leaks a real problem ,,can act many different ways ,, when placing the adapter intake on,, take note of the weld ,, the 2 nuts that you just tighten in many cases are not pressing against the flange of the adapter ,but is pressing against the weld on the side of the adapter ,,file the weld so that the nuts
    now press against the flange of the adapter ,, this problem was tricky to find because after you tighten the nuts you would think the flange is tight against the motor,,so with a good gasket and always place a o,ring between the carb and the adapter you should
    have no air leaks ,,hope this will help
