Re: 1"spacer for VB carb

Made one from aluminium bar with a deep undercut allowing the studs to be exposed. 1/4 inch flanges both ends. 1 inch length is the max to allow a 389 1 1/8 amal to fit with bellmouth without touching the oil tank.

Hi John,
I will do that. He took the photos away with him - but I will follow it up. There's a couple of Triumph ones as well may be of interest.
Best Regards
