Regular SHA's are made out of pot metal too, but you're right the casting quality isn't as good on some of them. Either Dakar or Arbeo-whichever the one is thats made in italy- actually have the clamp area beefed up a good bit.
I also have gotten them before where the clamp area is a mm bigger than standard SHA, so if you crank them down onto a regular SHA shim they will crack. I cant remember what or where that carb came from but i do remember having to make a custom shim for it since it wasn't the standard sized one.
I also have an SHA with an extra small clamp... go figure... i think its a 'P' off a early 90's golden bullet A3?
The o-ring between the manifold and carb always works for me but you gotta put a little pressure on it when you install it. If you can find the cup seal looking o-ring jammer that some bikes came with stock, that shit is money.
