This is the part of the engine where the fuel/air mix is supplied to the combustion chambers. In a fuel injected engine, it only supplies air.

Is there a gasket between motor an carb there is a neapreen inlay where it bolts on

The rubber inlet manifold fits onto the cylinder but inside the rubber is a small 'pipe' that must fit into the small hole on the cylinder block otherwise there will not be sufficient vacuum created as the piston rises to drive the diaphragm in the carb. It is easier to fit the inlet manifold rubber to the cylinder before putting it back into the housing. Between the carb and the inlet manifold is a thin plastic 'gasket' with a small pipe. That pipe fits into the vacuum hole on the inlet manifold. Often when the machine is dismantled the inlet manifold will not go back right - it will either be less flexible or gone hard over the years so a replacement is necessary. The Stihl part is expensive but aftermarket ones are available.

Water on spark plugs on starting is it a blown gasket

not necessarily
have a compression test done first to eliminate the gasket
other points are: - the inlet manifold v motors use a passage in the inlet manifold to cross water between the heads at the back
if your motor is a v motor (not included in the question ) then there could be a corrosion hole in the manifold letting water in to the combustion chamber
corrosion in the head that is allowing water to the inlet manifold --won't show up in a compression test as it will be on the inlet side of the valves
any problems such as a blown head gasket , cracked head or corrosion in the combustion chamber will result in overheating of the engine so the problem ( if the compression test is good ) will be corrosion in a part that is connected to the inlet manifold such as a EGR valve

1991Buick skylark stall when hitting brakes

Check the brake booster. It is connected to the inlet manifold as it uses the vacuum coming from the inlet manifold. A leaking diaphragm might cause to much air entering the inlet manifold. Start the engine and let it idle - check that it doesn\'t idle to low, if so adjust first - step hard on the brake pedal as during an emergency stop. If the engines stalls it is the brake booster.

Runs good idle but when give gas cut off

sounds like a carburation problem to me
may be your choke is not switching off when you push the lever
and is seized where it joins the carburetor
get some light oil and lubricate the cable and take the choke mechs apart and clean it up then reassemble
cracked inlet manifold carburetor (connecting pipe)
it sounds like a damaged air filter or a cracked inlet manifold

if it is a cracked manifold
a quick get you home trick is to remove your carburetors
get 4 condoms put the condoms over the inlet manifold
cut holes in the end to refit your carbs
reassemble the bike
to get you home on the way home call in at your local motorcycle spares shop and order some new inlet manifolds

order a new air filter while you are there as well

hope this helps out

ride safe

2004jaguar s-type 4.2 liter water leak in back of manifold

there are 2 hoses that run under the inlet manifold that are prone to failing. also the plastic tower at the front of the inlet manifold on top of the engine can leak from its o ring seal where it bolts to the cyl, block. have a look if you can see coolant under the inlet manifold, you may have to remove the manifold to locate the problem area. hope this helps. i am a retired jag. there are also coolant hoses on the throttle body that can fail.

What does IMT stand for

Refers to the Inlet Manifold Tuning Valves, two large black valves on the top or side of the inlet manifold. The O rings can fail on these and the inlet manifold can get contaminated with oil. check out Jaguar Technical Info XT303-13 here

I need instructions on how to replace a fuel pressure regulator and intake gasket manifold in a 1994 Toyota 4runner. Do you know where I can get that information?

The pressure regulator should be fitted ot the fuel rail firewall end and the inlet manifold gasket on the inlet manifold when you take it off ,and the inlet manifold is the one which goes to the air filter pipe and airfilter box.

If the cat was blocked you would have noticed a massive power loss and your speed would have been down to - 40kph

If that was the case then yes the cat has collapsed and needs replacing
