Title: Carb spacer installation
Post by: Bill on February 21, 2021, 05:24:46 PM
Starting my carb reinstallation, have the Felpro installed above and below the spacer now and have a wonderful vacuum leak (high pitched whine). Thinking my custom cut MrGasket picture below might alleviate the vacuum leak. All to be installed dry I assume as that is what I am used to. Or is there a proper part number I have yet to stumble across that will work without custom cutting?

Check the spacer. The reproduction for my 68 was not flat. I used a large flat file to get it flat. Mike

Sand paper on a pane of glass is also a good way to get flat surfaces.  :)

Two on the bottom and one on the top of the spacer between the spacer and the carb?
Or like I have now, one at the bottom between the spacer and the intake, and one between the spacer and the carb?

Thanks in advance,

Bill
