i have a block with ventalation through the valve covers, one where the oil is poured in and one where there is a vacume line hooked up to a 1 inch spacer under my carb. what happens if i disconnect the vacume line and take out the spacer?

Nothing, as long as you're planning on putting a breather in the hole. I'd say keep it how it is now, that's a PVC system, and keeps the breathers from smoking... which makes a really nasty smell if you happen to use synthetic oil. Plus the spacer should improve top end power.

Make sure you have a baffle on that side... which I'm guessing you do.

Sounds like a stud about 3" long would do just fine. That would give you 1/2" engagement in the manifold and 1/2" left over at the top for a washer and nut.

I'd keep the spacer just in case you change your mind later, never know... sometime you might want to use it.
