Most spacers that are available are 1" thick, You can get other thicknesses but the availability is not as abundant as the 1".

Some people don't like the software Dyno program but I have several different programs as such and one takes into account the spacer height and I found that a 1" gave me the best powerband down low then either a 3/4" or a 1 1/4" spacer.

I also build my own spacers as most of the available spacers are for carbs with a bore size of 1 11/16" and if you have a spread bore the bores of the spacer don't match with the bores of the carb. The primary spacer bores will be bigger then the bore of the primary throttle plate.
