Where to get phenolic float pivot spacer for Motorcraft carb?

I'm working on a 2BBl Autolite or Motorcraft carb on an 86 or 87 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with a 360. Sometime prior to the current owner buying this thing, the phenolic "spacer" was removed and I can't find it at any parts stores. I found a carb at a junkyard but hate to take the chance on it not having the right spacer in it. The spacer I'm talking about is the one that sits on top of the float hinge pin.
Thanks,
Chip.

Why not re-build the one from the junk yard? I never figured why they put those in there any way!

My buddy is probably going to have to spring for another kit for this one from the junkyard. i was just trying to avoid it since I put the old one together and realizzed whoever rebuilt it had left that out. I think that's why the vehicle has less than 100K on it and it's last inspection was in 1991. The spacer keeps the float hinge in the right spot so the needle doesn't come off its seat and let the carb overflow with fuel.

You talking about the little plastic thingy like a cover that slips over the float hinge? If yes, I know what your talking about. I just never heard it called by that name! If not I'm clueless I guess. Kind of makes you wonder how it's run right this long, or has it?
