So trying to solve my engine surge upon start up on my 76' Midget, wearing a DGAV 32/36 Weber, there is a lot of smoke pouring out of the manifold to head. I'm guessing that is where my vacuum leak may be originating from? Is it a standard exhaust manifold gasket I need to order for a 1500, or do I need something specific to the Weber set-up I'm not sure if you can see but on the first image there a wisps of smoke coming up below the fuel filter, and on the second near the back of the manifold to the right. The video I took is much more compelling, however its to large to download. TIA

Daniel: Also if possible, at least lay a straight edge across the manifold's to see if they are pretty straight. You can pick up a piece of aluminum flat stock at like "Home Depot" or "Lowes" and use the "EDGE" to check for "Flatness"
You may have to take the manifold to an "Auto Machine Shop". and have them run it on their "BIG Belt sander. They usually have HUGH ones to lightly flatten cylinder heads and the like. Have Fun. smileys with beer
