Can anyone help me out here? I have a 69 chevelle with an old style edelbrock tunnel ram on it. When I bought the car a few years ago it had a hole in the hood for the carbs but I've since changed hoods and went with a harwood 4.5 inch fiberglass hood. With the spacers under the carbs the hood is hiting the air cleaner in the front. I want to know if there is any advantage or disadvantage to running with the spacers or without because I'm thinking about just taking them off so the hood will clear. Any help would be appreciated.
