I don't know about the motorcraft, but for my weber conversion, I had to get different length studs and replace the existing ones. I had to use two nuts together on the stud to pull it out. It was alot easier that way.:tea:

Can you take a pic and post it? if i remember right my adapter plate mounted to the manifold using allen head bolts that set down in recessed areas on the plate so that everything was flush.
