I did this and no longer have any vacuum leaks or that, oh so nice, whistling noise under the hood.
BTDT, should have mentioned it in my earlier reply

I have always tried to steer folks back to factory for F series. Seriously. We all know Hollys suck a$$ off road unless you do a bunch of mods (WTF is a whistle tube anyway?). IMHE, Webers work fine but you have to dork around with linkage, don't have control over the choke, The air cleaner housing doesn't fit, you have adapters (see above) and all kinds of little doo daas. Factory Aisan works great at what ever angle you are off road, gives GREAT mileage (compared to Hollys and Webers), and everything fits (air cleaner housing, linkage, fuel lines, ect.). And they last a long A$$ed time between rebuilds.

But yeah. What Mike said. Those last couple threads on the adapter screws need to come off on the Weber kits I have dorked around with.

...So it's winter time, let's get this baby figured out once and for all Jeff! What do you say? Treeroot's got the magic numbers posted (if you have a 38/38), so all that needs to be done is to take it apart and see what you have! Who's in, Friday at corsair23's house? We'll have it done before you come home from work!

Knock yourselves out

Although you've seen my garage...It might be easier to take the 40 to a location where you'll actually be able to work on it

If you can hold off till later this Spring, it would be fun to work with you guys on it so I actually learn something
