[TR] Looking for ZS 175 CD choke gaskets. State side

On the TR6 carbs the metering disc (choke thingy) is spring loaded and will push into the choke body when assembled to the carb body.  In this way, the disc applies constant pressure against the body.  When the chock is disengaged the fuel source is blocked off but the disc.  When the engine is off the port is above the float bowl level.  When it is running there is a slight depression at that point.  This combination means there is very little seepage even without the gasket.

But if you can get gaskets, use them.

It seems that later carbs didn't make use of a gasket between choke mechanism and carb.  but I noticed with a late  carb set I have the choke thingy doesn't seen to sit flat against the body.

I only need these gaskets and don't want to buy a kit

SOC spare in the UK sells standalone gaskets.
