Redline - Gasket Soft Mount Kit DCOE Weber DHLA Dellorto Sidedraft
It is a common occurrence for side draft carburetor installations to suffer from damage and frothing issues due to vibration. As the carburetor is mounted sideways, often on a long runner manifold, it is more susceptible to engine vibration. This frothing is due to harmonic vibration. Incorrect tensioning can also cause stress cracks to appear in the main body of the carburetor, particularly around the stud flange hence we include instructions.
Redline Performance produces a special soft mount kit for 40 to 48mm size side draft carburettors to solve the problems of vibration. The kit comes with a special vulcanized rubber ‘O’ ring style gasket bonded to two aluminum plates. The ‘O’ ring creates a positive seal while also dampening vibration from the engine. The kit also comes with a set of nyloc nuts and rubber grommets with captive washers to insulate the carburetor from the manifolds mounting studs.
The soft mount kit suits side draft carburettors from Weber, Solex, Dellorto.
