Carb baffle plate

'65 401 buick with Edelbrock carb.

I was told that I needed a "baffle plate" under my carb to insulate it from the manifold and make it idle better. I ordered one. $22 with shipping. And it looks like a gasket made out of metal. Thats it. Now is this going to work? It doesnt look like its going to do anything at all but raise my carb 1/16".

I am going to try it. Nobody has talked me into returning it. If it does anything, I will sh.. And I will let you know. At least I dont think I can hurt anything.

I plan on putting a gasket on then this shim thing, then another gasket. Do I put any permatex on it?

The use of a heat insulator is to prevent fuel percolation(sp?) due to high temps. They do work as they absorb some of the heat. Not sure how hot the old 401's run so not sure how affective it will bebut still worth while to put on regardless.
