787 Intake Questions
Well, it's finally warmed up enough so that I can get back out in the garage and get back to work on my 787 engine. I've got a dilema; what should I do about an intake? I bought a Buckshot intake from a guy on PWCToday and I got to looking at it today and I think its for spigot type carbs (I think it needs an adapter or something). The bolt holes are vertical, where the bolt holes in a stock intake are slightly angled to one side. I can't see any way that a stock carb setup will work on this. I have another option, a milled stock intake. If anyone remembers, I had a stock intake with some deep grooves, so I milled the intake down. The only problem is that the rotary valve gap is .020". Bill O'Neal posted once on PWCToday that you could probably get away with .020" gap. What do you guys think I should do? I would trade the Buckshot intake for another intake, as long as it will work with stock carbs. Also, if I do go with the stock intake, does anyone have any suggestions on premanently plugging the oil "injector" nozzles (removing them or something else)?

Buckshot intakes dont work with stock carbs.
Nobody makes a aftermarket intake for stock carb,thats the reason the make aftermarket intakes.....to put aftermarket carbs on.
