Carburetor Base Plate

Managed to break my carburetor base plate (the plastic / rubber one between intake and carb). Where can I find a replacement? I've called around and noone has them.

edit: I guess this also called an insulator plate.

unfortunately the part is discontinued. Ive potentially found 1 in New York, but I'm not sure. Its a real big PITA for such a small part

Carb rebuild kit or buy any adapter plate, it ought to have a fat gasket as well. Either way, $20.

The rebuild kit comes with the paper gasket, but I need the insulator plate which is made of plastic material and about 3/4" thick. Even the junkyards in my area don't have any!

have you thought of making one. from what i remember its a spacer with two large holes for the throat of the carb and 4 holes that fit over the studs. shouldnt be too hard to make with a drill bit and a hole saw.

What carb do you have? If it's the Carter you can get the carb base gasket from Autozone.
