HERE'S an interesting carb spacer that is made of steel vs the more commonly seen aluminum part, that is offered for sale by eBay member " tcas9511 " for $60.00.

"WHAT YOU ARE VIEWING IS A NEW 4 BBL CARB SPACER PLATE. THE ORIGINAL SPACER PLATES WERE MADE OUT OF ALUMINUM AND CORRODED AND LEAKED. THIS IS THE REPLACEMENT STEEL VERSION. IT WILL WORK ON MOST EARLY '60 TO LATE '60 FORD ENGINES WITH 4 BBL CARBS. IT DOES HAVE THE PVC HOSE CONNECTION ON THE BACK. THEY ARE NOT IN ANY SORT OF BOX OR PACKAGE AND DO HAVE MINOR SURFACE RUST FROM STORAGE, BUT WILL CLEAN RIGHT OFF."

This spacer is NOT truly a replacement for the aluminum version. Note the flare out on the passenger side of the spacer. The area that flares out by the rear stud will not seal to the manifold as the manifold and the gasket do not extend out that far.

Thanks for the reply...I noticed that flare right off, but wanted to get a response from the site regarding this item. It has no apparent casting numbers visible to further identify the source. I wonder if this is even a FORD part or not.
