    UUUgh I never mentioned automatic gearbox s but as you correctly state it would be unhealthy. But you will not be doing that as you already know what the downside are . And you are "the"poster that my comments are aimed at , so any other people sourcing information on R and S will now know too thanks.
    The overspeeding you mention would be at very very high speeds 140 MPH upwards . 2-3000 RPM would not be in that bracket LOL. But better safe than sorry .

    I still suspect a valve seating issue as those adjuster nuts were backed off.

    Always better to start with a 4 hole spacer ,on a dual plane manifold ,think of it as an extension of the Carb. base which in your case has 4 holes.Trial and error comes to mind.
