So can i just take the spacer off the intake and put it between the carb? In other words,run NO spacer between intake and elbow,just a spacer between carb and elbow? And why do u space the carb out there instead of on the intake?is the air filter elbow and all that look right?? A pic would be very helpful
You have the spacer installed in the correct location now. The horizontal engines come from the factory with the spacer between the intake and the elbow, and no spacer between the elbow and carb because the idle adjuster screw is built into the elbow. Since you aren't running a stock vanguard horizontal carb, you can also put a spacer between the elbow and carb to space it away from the flywheel for more room to reach your adjuster.
