I need a riser plate

I have the 258 with a Weber 38/38 and I've been spending weeks trying to find a manifold spacer plate. I want to get a spacer to raise my carburetor up 2" so that I get a better tornado intake, but I'm having a really hard time finding a place that sells spacers for mine. Anybody know where I can get one at?

The largest I have seen are an inch thick. Do not remember where. Have you tried summit racing?

Send me a piece of phenolic and I will machine one for you. You can find phenolic on ebay or local plastic supply houses. I have pics in my gallery of how to make a 99 n up intake manifold to Motorcraft carb adaptor.
Just include a Weber base gasket so I have a pattern to go by you will get better velocity if the 2 bbls are separated so a gasket with a divider is best.

If you have a picture of one that you did it is not easy to find in your gallery.

The pics of the orangeish material is the adaptor, there are quite a few pics of the build.
I don't know how to post them from my gallery to this thread.
