If I install a carb spacer, what will I have to do to the throttle linkage to make it fit?
Thanks.

A spacer of 1" or less may not make any diff or can be adjusted for without modifications, when the spacer is tall like 2" you might run out of adjustment and the angle can get so steep it won't open the carb because of overcentering.

It's only 1 inch. I am going to have to get a drop-base air cleaner, too.
