Made from layers of canvas impregnated with synthetic resin binder, the benefits of phenolic sheet for carburetor spacers are well documented. Reducing heat transfer from the intake manifold to the carburetor, they can promote a cooler, denser fuel mixture for more horsepower. Manufactured in the USA exclusively for Stromberg, the new 1/4in spacers are cut from Natural Canvas Grade C Phenolic sheet with the classic brown color. The full kit (part number 39447K) includes two gaskets – used above and below the spacer – and work with 97s and other 3-bolt, 2-barrel carburetors like the Holley and Edelbrock 94s.
Carb spacers need extra long intake studs, check out the extended manifold stud kit (Part number 89067-E) – three 1/4in longer studs with stainless steel nuts and lock washers.

Before…After...Before…After...Before…After...Before…After. The ‘ol FnAbone’s long, long journey. Here she is the day I picked her up and how she sits today. (Before = late 90s). The fine gentleman I bought her from had it set up for SBC. Well, that’s not going to do. I needed a home for a very fine ‘47 Flathead plus a ‘39 Ford transmission and the FnAbone fit the bill. (1929 Ford Model A Tudor). She sits a bit lower now thanks to a 5” drop i-beam axle and different springs for the ‘69 9-inch. The journey continues, this past summer the early ‘80s MGB seats got rebuilt and new upholstery added. Up next, maybe a back seat.
