Re: MC2100 help
I have no idea what would be the ideal height of the spacer between the carb base and the plenum. But, if you want a cheap source of a spacer that fits the MC2100 exactly, go to your junk yard. Almost all the Ford's have an EGR plate this is approximately 1" thick and fits between the MC2100 carb base and the ford intake manifold. You could unbolt
the EGR assembly and epoxy the port shut.
Whether it's optimal or not, I wouldn't doubt that Clifford or Offenhauser simply intended you to put the carb right on top of the adapter that bolts to their manifolds (factory spacer and gasket between of course).
