    Should I stack 2 carb spacers togather? Would that help the carb cool better? Or should I just stick with one spacer and add a homemade cooler?

    I talk to a carb guy back when I first got my Jimmy and he said that for wheelin, you wont see much difference with a carb spacer. He said they are more for high RPM use.

    There was a good article in Hot Rod magazine earlier this year that dealt with carb spacers. Explained what they did and did tests with a bunch of different kinds. If you want i can look for the article and give you a heads up on the issue number and all that.

    make sure you use a WOODEN spacer. they cost more, but you will like it better. you will only notice it on the higher RPM's though.
