C8AZ-9A589-C Carburetor spacer plate

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

I was afraid of that. Is there another solution? Leave it off?

You could use the gasket as a pattern other than the tabs. I don't have any measurements. Two of my cars had that. I think the one is still on my green GT-E.
