It already has a 1" aluminum carb spacer.
the aluminum one dont isolate the carb base from manifold heat, but to the thermal property of aluminum. phenolic, other plastic and even wood spacers keep the carb cooler if you are having a boil/ vaper issue.

on the tank comment. i have had a few trucks and a backhoe have rocks and other stupid crap like a piece of plastic get sucked on to the bottom of the pict up tubes starving the engine. shut it off let it sit (rock/ plastic move away) engine starts and fine, till the next time that happends

I'm going to install the ignition module and bypass the tank this weekend after work. I'll post my findings when they are found.

Thank you all for the help and suggestions!

Quick update:

I got the ignition control wired in, not the way I would've liked, but it'll work until I get a more permanent connection.

I didn't get a chance to try it yet because the battery I had charged at Walmart didn't have enough juice to even try to turn it over and I don't have a jump vehicle handy. I also need a longer fuel hose to reach down into a gas can to bypass the tank.

Baby steps, but we're getting there!

Update:

Charged the battery overnight and put it back in the truck only to have it really try to start for about half a second then go completely useless, won't even take a jump. I took the battery back to Wallyworld a couple of weeks ago for an exchange just to have them charge it and give it back. I bought the battery back around late Feb of this year so I hope they swap it this time.

I knew I should've went with a better battery, but Wallyworld was convenient at the time.

Update:

Swapped the battery for a new one, checked and rechecked all connections, turned the key . . . nothing, not a @!&#! thing.

I'm at my wits end here, the only thing left in the starting loop is the solenoid.

However, there is also an "anti-theft" device connected to the steering column between the switch and module that locks out the ignition unless the truck is in drive. I've wondered if this could be the problem and I've contemplated ridding myself of it as I really only see it as another failure point in the loop, I'd honestly rather have a hidden toggle switch to lock out the ignition instead.

My absolute last resort is putting this thing in a shop because I don't really have one I trust and I don't have screw-me-over money to blow before finding a reputable one.

Id take any extras out of the equation... Anti theft crap like that is often the source of headaches.

The solenoid could also be bad though... thats not uncommon. Are you getting power to it when you turn the key to 'start' ?

Agreed, I'll check for power next round.

That's part of my frustration, I was assured of a tip top reliable ride. I got about a week of enjoyment followed by 6 months of nothing but trouble.
