is there a difference in the non stick bowl and metering block gaskets for methenol and gasoline or are they the same?

Stupid "non-stick" red gaskets stuck like tar and i ripped the gaskets. I am a fan of the blue ones myself...

No, they're the same. What I did was found the best deal in town. Quick-Fuel makes a little kit. Here's the link:http://www.summitracing.com/parts/QFT-3-210/?rtype=10

Enlarge the picture to see what it includes, it's a great deal for $27.

another little racers trick to make sure the gaskets dont stick is to use chapstick on them where the bowl meets the metering block and main body.. :shock: :shock:
