Thanks Peter, while I was waiting for carb response, I changed the shaft log hose. Coupling came right off, was totally surprised. New packing gland and the strut bearing is ok. All back together. Carb next. Thanks again guys.

Talked to the holley guys, said the thick gasket is for heat insulation. Do not use with aluminum spacer. Which way does the upper gasket install? with the opening on the primary(front) or secondary (back) of the carb? These gaskets are not the same as original. Thanks

Do what you want but here's what I have done for the 4160 for 35 years....

Use the 1" spacer plate and two new marine gaskets. http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=RM0054B
Works for me many times over.

I have never seen the likes of the 3/8" gasket and the other gaskets look automotive.....or an incorrect kit for your carb. Holley folks have not necessarily impressed me from several times of contact with them (as recent as last month), but then maybe I live a sheltered life.

To answer your question, the larger single opening would go to the rear to accommodate for the PCV outlet. However, I don't think it matters because I use the gasket/plate combo as stated above and in the link. Never an issue for me....
