    I need to plug some vac holes in my carb. Anyone know where I can get some little rubber caps or something similar?

    Most any autoparts store.
    I get mine at the local Autozone. They come in a variety pack.

    My personal favorite is to go get some set screws, and pull the fitting out, tap the hole, and use the set screws to plug it. I've seen the stupid rubber caps blow off in a backfire, and they aren't well suited to engine heat...they start to crack pretty shortly after being installed.
