Carburetor Heat Shield/Gasket Question

Recommended Posts

I have looked in my shop and Vauxhall manual to find a diagram for the carburetor and heat shield mounting, but have not found anything.  At first glance, it would seem apparent that there may only be one way to mount these, but I would still feel better if I knew what order you all have had success with.  In other terms, does the order go: manifold, thick gasket, heatshield, base gasket, then carburetor?  It appears I may have a vacuum leak that I am trying to track down.  Any input is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Why I am asking this is because I would like to order a new thick gasket, however the Vauxhall manual and California Pontiac Restoration both list only a thin gasket for the 1951 model year. Hmmm...
