    Not sure what you mean by spacer. If you mean gasket, yes you should use one if you don't want oil leaking out. Buy one, make one or at least use RTV gasket maker.

    No I have the gaskets. I guess its used to properly mount the fuel pump to get the correct stroke off the camshaft

    Just compare the pumps. If the pump arms look the same and are the same length (which they should be if you just got a replacement pump) then you shouldn't need a spacer. Also, im not sure if those ride directly on the cam or if they have a pushrod, but if there is a rod, putting a small dab of silicone on it will save you a lot of time and headaches...IMO
