So putting my 1 inch spacer under the carb on top of the RPM intake will certainly make things tight then...

That's why I use the thin one!-- You don't really need a spacer with the RPM manifold- I just use the Edelbrock # 9266 "Heat Isolator Gasket" to keep the carb cool.

Are they steel washers on the corners? Sounds like a good idea to keep you from over tightening ( I have snapped off the ears of a baseplate before by over-tightening)

Yep, steel washers-and the gasket itself is made of layers of paper type material that squishes to give it a good seal, but you can only us it once . About $16 from Summit.

P.S.-it is not made of nitrile rubber like it says on the Summit site-it's layers of thin paper gasket material and it works great - cured my hot starting problem.
