Does anyone know where to get the carburetor metal shim? Part number, supplier, back alley with shady carb part dealer?

I just found this. Part number 1486573

(http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=1486573&_sacat=6028&_odkw=baffle+plate&_osacat=6028&bkBtn=&_trksid=m270)Also my shop manual shows a gasket under the baffle plate. Then I assume an insulator gasket on top of that. This is the ONLY source I've found for these. I've been looking for a while and just found the PN.

----------

I just read the manual, and it say gasket on top of manifold, shim on top gasket, and carburetor on top of that. So that's how it came from the factory anyway. I know this is an old thread, but hopefully this will help somebody like me in the future

I had a car with one of those shim/gaskets years ago. I seem to remember that it blocked off a passage or opening in the carb base....
