    Default "R" Intake Stuffer Grates for Sale???

    Does anyone have any "R" intake stuffer grates they want to sell? The "R" intake grate uses rails (6 bolts total) instead of the square pad intake grates everyone else uses.

    Thanks

    I have one i would sell ya, I won't use it, its all wrong for my set up. PM me and I will shoot ya a picture. Are you looking for the stock one or a custom one? The one I would let go is a billet piece that was made for my boat a few years ago.

    We run a 1978 vintage low profile "R" Intake and it has a slightly rectangular socket with 4 bolt holes.

    Must have been modified, all the R intakes I've ever seen have 6 bolt holes.

    No modifications in terms of the loader socket though I've done some significant mods elsewhere on the intake ... standard Berkeley low profile "R" (Race) intake ..... not too many were made, nor installed, and not too many around anymore.

    Yep, thats me. I broke my grate last year at the power tour. I have a jig I made because I had to make my own grates when I was testing the boat. You can't find these things anywhere so I figured I would see if anyone has one of these things layinng around.
    I just finished making one up yesterday. I took the grate out of the old "Rich Bitch" Placecraft boat and made a copy. Turned out nice!
    When you going to the river again?
