Carb mounting is still being quite tricky. With the adapter, 1/2" spacer, and carb hat on there is more fitment issues. The linkage looks like it is in a good spot as well as the fuel line. Now the hood wont close
Great job you have the carb oriented the right way on the engine for the best flow! How much room do you have between the fuel bowl and top of valve cover could you use less than the 1/2 inch spacer? If so there were some thick crab base gaskets used on the mid 1970's 2V Ford V8's that could work well and also insulate the carb from heat. Looks like the base of your carb hat could be milled down some to drop it another 1/2 inch, how much to high is the carb setting up? I really like your build plan for the Wagon, good luck
