carb gasket
 
Ok here is a strange one. When I removed the single barrel carb from the intake manifold, I found that there was a stack of 6 gaskets between the carb and manifold.

You can kinda sorta of make them out here...

A poor mans' carb spacer?

Is there supposed to be a spacer?

No,I don't think so,but they were sometimes added to reduce heat and prevent vapor lock,I believe.

Don't let me fool you in the least - I don't really know this stuff inherently.I just regurgitate what I hear.And that,only when I can remember it.
