Re: Carb gasket surface

JB weld on carburetors is good for 10,000 miles or 10 minutes, whichever occurs first.

Re: Carb gasket surface

Re: Stromburg linkage ball

These work perfectly for what you want to achieve.
Cut your own 3/16" rod to length and thread the ends 10-32 with a die. Eliminates the "mush" of the old rod and can also be used on the choke...

Re: 97 carb base

Chances are the one with the triangular base has the 3rd upper idle squirters and the notched venturis to match them. The highspeed airbleeds are also smaller. The two carbs will be kinda OK running...
