Carburettor to Manifold Gaskets

anglia New "Anglia", Range

It is possible that if the wrong carburettor to manifold gasket is fitted to a 997cc, 1198cc, 1340cc or 1500cc engine some slight peculiarity in engine performance could occur. For example:-

(a) carburettor percolation if a thin paper type gasket is fitted instead of a thick asbestos gasket.

(b) a slight whistle occurring if a gasket, that has slots cut in the bore, is used instead of a gasket with a round bore.

Therefore please ensure that the correct gasket is fitted to an engine by referring to the table below:-

Engine Gasket
997cc (Pre-pump type - Carburettor Part No 105E-9510-B) 105E-9447 Thick asbestos type with
two slots cut in bore
997cc (Pump type - Carburettor Part No 105E-9510-C)
113E-9447 Thick asbestos type with
round bore
1500cc (Standard)
109E-9447 Thin paper type with
round bore
1500cc (GT) 116E-9447 Will only fit four hole
flange on special manifold
