Good to hear Magoo. Sorry I wasn't around all weekend to chime in on your issues.

You installed that curved neck IM while you had the DE one off, right? Crazy to do that job twice when you don't have to!

I don't have any diagrams handy, sorry Magoo.

We'll get that curved neck on at a mod meet soon enough!

Did you use new IM gaskets or re-use the old? If you re-used the old, what type of RTV did you use on them? Or did you use Phenos (any RTV?) instead?

i used the old gasket. it was a metal gasket n looks like it can be re-used.
I've re-used them, but only with RTV on both sides.

This could be your idle problem.
