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.

First Jeep was an 1989 YJ, 6 cylinder 4.2L , 258. Nuttered and TeamRushed, Weber 38 DGES, Now, I'm venturing into the world of Grand Cherokees

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.
