    Francesco,
    I am not a Weber man but I can guarantee you that this is not correct. You absolutely need an airtight seal between manifold and carb. This would certainly mess up your acceleration.

    Re: Clutch Spring

    The bracket just needs to be attached on the other side of the housing and flipped around. They must have installed it like this to compensate for the longer spring.
