Someone on this list gave me the fix. I had been chasing this for quite some time. Once done, it lowered my #3 cht by 20-25 degrees.

Yep, I put 3 washers there... #3 is now 30F cooler. Even cooler than #1.
I might remove 1 washer...

As for the Spark Plug holes, I used what Vans suggested and there was still a gap.
As I don't have to go through these holes to install/remove the plugs, I filled the gaps with Red RTV.
