Hello: Thanks for the reply. I put the air cleaner on and checked today and the hood dose close without hiting anything. The spacer is like 1/4 inch thick fiber composit material. I think when you raise the carburetor up it creates an increase in the speed of the air flow into the manafold actually! More air into the engine usually means more power! I doubt however it's anything noticeable, but I really liked the quality of this gasket over any I've found as it even had hard plastic grommits for the carburetor studs to pass through when fastening it down on the intake manifold! Just waiting for the Eastwood exhause hi heat paint to arrive to install the exhaust manifolds to complete the job.
