EGR plate delete on a 1979 7.5l 460

[B[Hello all, the old holley 4 barrel 1850 carb needed a rebuild so while pulling it off I noticed that the EGR was a plate sandwiched between the carb base and the intake manifold base.
My question is can I remove the EGR and the plate put carb spacer in its place? Currently the EGR isnt hooked to anything.
What do you think or has anyone had had any experience doing this?
/B]

You can get an adaptor that will replace the EGR plate. I put the transdapt 2199 on mine. It is a complete kit so you wouldn’t need anything else. They are getting expensive though. They are currently running about $65.00

Thanks Gary. I ended up just sticking it back on unhooked up of course.
