Re: Looking for Manifold bracket(thing of a bob)?
I've seen universal ones at Car Quest, Checker, NAPA etc. They just clamp around the manifold or a tube style header with a hose clamp or two. Check them out![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
gigolo: You are right in that a carb needs "cool" air to make more power, but up in these parts (frozen tundra of the upper midwest) -20 degrees won't even allow a carb'ed engine to run while warming up. There is a vaccum controlled "flapper" valve in the snorkle of most air cleaner housings that is activated by a thermal switch. Once the engine comes up to temp, this flapper closes off the hot air from the manifold and allows cooler air to enter from the air filter's snorkle.
