EGR Block Off

Does anyone know where I can purchase an EGR block off plate for a stock 1979 chevy sb350 intake manifold? This engine is in a chevy truck.

The EGR valve is in the way of my secondary pump operating lever for my carburetor. Any block off plates that I come across are usually for Holley intakes.

The design of these plates do not seem to work due to the fact that my EGR does not bolt directly to my intake, but is held on with a bracket. Similar in style to the way a distributor is held in place.

Thanks again,
Steve

Why do you want to block it off?

I made my own from billet aluminum and used the original hold down bracket and a little silicone.

Worked well.

A piece of 1/4 in steel will also work.

BTW, removing the EGR will not enhance performance in any way.................

spacer

[size=3]Doc here

rather than removing the EGR, can you add a Carb spacer to the manifold to raise it up a bit?

I am pretty sure summit or jegs would sell them. I know holley makes them. I just installed a holley intake and it came with the blockoff plate. Call jegs or summit, they will have something for sure.
