Why does my carb whistle?

The back of my carburettor is whistling when the engine is running. It seems to be coming through the gasket. I replaced the gasket about a month ago and the whistling stopped. After I drove to Hermann and back, it started again. Could the base of my weber be warped? Any ideas?

p.s. could someone talk to me about msd ignitions? advantages, disadvantages, prices, difficulty, etc.

it's probably a bad gasket caused, as you mentioned by a warped base or cover. A warped base can be remedied by removing the carb, taping a piece of fine emery cloth to a sheet of glass, and carefully rubbing the carb base on the emery cloth until the whole base is shiny. As for a warped cover, the float bracket precludes your doing the emery cloth/glass trick. You might have to use some gasket cement to seal the air leak.

Cheers
