Carb tightening

Recommended Posts

I have just put the carbs back on the car.  The workshop manual mentions there must be a 1mm gap between the carb body and the spacer.

 

With that in mind, I got a 1mm thick piece of laminate from work to use as a guide but having tightened it up it looks like there is too much gap to me.

 

How do you guys measure this when fitting the carbs back (or do you?)

I also have a piece of 1mm thick plastic shim. I tighten them up until they look right and then check them with the shim.
