Thanks. I thought that was a great price, and all the parts in one lot.
I went for the 1/2" one, but a heads up.... It was the last one that was listed. Don't fear though, they have a direct phone number on their auction listings, and it sounds like they'd be happy to put any package together that you need.

the original spacers where 3/8" thick.
the 1/4 or 1/2 inch should be fine. if you use the 1/2" then the  nuts will be flush with the top of the original studs.
new studs are included in these kits though

you can also get them from his website.

i think he is just repackaging canton spacers.

original studs

some available on ebay

if you are running the thicker 1/2" spacer it will come with longer studs. but here is an option for them

I bought the 1/4" spacer and the 1/2' spacer from the ebay seller to test fit the parts and both fit perfectly to the intake manifold. I have taken photos of just the test fitting of both the 1/4 and 1/2 inch spacers and you can decide for yourselves which size you wish to use.
