Yes with the heat separator to prevent fuel from being cooked out due to heat soak.

For sure on the heat spacer. The Eddies are notorious for fuel percolation due to how the darn fuel bowls rest directly on the intake manifold. I have 1407 on my BBC and it's a constant battle during the summer months.

I started using PHENOLIC BLACK 1/4 carb adapters for my cars, depends on the clearance for your hood, if you have cowl induction then 1 inch is the norm.

If you have an EPS manifold, then it is not a spread bore manifold. The EPS is a square bore manifold. Edelbrock does not list an EPS manifold with a spread bore flange. The only spread bore flanges they offer are the standard Performer(2101), the Performer Vortec(2116), Performer Air Gap(2601) and the Performer RPM Q-Jet(7104). If in fact you do have an EPS, I do not recommend running a spread bore to square bore adapter. If it's a standard Performer or one of the other manifolds I listed, they should have holes for both square and spread bore on them. I agree with the need for a carb insulator, but DO NOT use a flange adapter.

The 2701 is a square bore manifold, not a spread bore. You don't need a flange adapter for a 2701. The 1406 carb is square bore and so is the 2701 manifold. All you need is the phenolic 4 hole spacer if you want low end or an open hole spacer if you want top end. Here is the picture of the Performer EPS manifold listed on the Edelbrock website. Definately a square bore mounting flange.
