I live in the Netherlands. Everything for my car is not available here, so has to come from the US.
Mr. Gasket markets the longer carb studs. some Nitrous oxide kits contain them.
Make your own with common threaded rod. Exhaust manifold studs???

Edelbrock makes various wood carb spacers open, 4hole and dual plane divided plenum style. Maybe they know something.. search their site.

You can always make your own. 1/2" melanite, plywood, partical board what ever.
I do..

Wood is a very good heat isolator and easy to work with.
