Typical aluminum casting problem. Don't try and straighten the tangs, just file the face flat and don't overtighten the mounting nuts at re-assembly.

----- ORIGINAL MESSAGE FOLLOWS -----
going through the steps of cleaning my mt82a carb after the winter and i
noticed this curve on the flange (see pic) i assume its from me tightening it down
too much the last time i worked on it. my first thought was that maybe that is
why the mounting gaskets consist of two thin and one thick to possibly make up
for any curvature that may happen over time.
any suggestions on how to correct the curvature. it amounts to about a 1/16"
difference.

thanks
