spacers

Just grind or mill the manifold, you don't have to take off that much, thats what most people do. i'll look to see what spacers i have.

not the problem jim. the plate/throttle bracket support wont let the accel pump push up cause it hits unless i space it about a half inch.got it figured out was just seeing what else was out there:)handlike skinning a cat theres always more than one way

Can i ask a dumb question

Is the spacer only for allowing linkages the proper space or is there some other benefit?
