cool, thanks for the info.

The old BMW 2000CS, 2002ti, and Mercedes 190SL came with Solex 40PHH dual sidedraft carbs and similar phenolic spacers between the carbs and short manifolds for the same reason... to try and stop heat transfer fuel vaporization.
They would still vaporize and boil gas over from the float bowls into the primary venturis after a hot shut down though.
Weber DCOE carbs aren't quite as bad about doing that.
