Hi everyone,

It's about time I introduce myself.  My name is Mike and 0062 is being awoken (?) after a few years slumber.  It is currently at the shop for all fluids, gas tank/lines and general check up. When my father purchased the car in '88 the original carb was included but had been replaced with a smaller carb.  The original has been rebuilt and is scheduled to be delivered in the morning. Now to my question, is there a spacer required between the carb and intake? 

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

No spacer is needed for a S2MS Holley carb installed on the Cobra intake.

Thank you Bob for the answer to my carb question and thank you guys for the welcome.  I'll post more pics when I get the car back and washed, it's very dusty.

Thanks,
Mike
