    Default scoop question

    do you guys have any problems with these turning on you?
    are you running a flame arrestor and is that enough to keep it straight?

    just cut a small slot on the base of the scoop, drill a small hole in the carb cleaner flange and put in a small sheet metal screw so that when the scoop is put on, the slot in the scoop slides around the bolt, and the bolt won't let the scoop turn. i've done it to several of my bud's boats.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Yeah, but how much will that screw weigh?

    I had one that used to turn. I drilled a small hole on each side of the base and ran a bolt down through the holes to keep it from turning either direction.

    Drill a small hole in the Carb air horn (near the base and drive a small hardware store roll pin in the hole, then grind a cooresponding slot in your scoop and or flame arrestor etc Tom

    I used two machine screws and nuts through the bottom of my stainless steel Dooley, one on either side of the float adjusment screw on my Holley carb., I like the other ideas better though...(especially the bungie LOL)

    I cut a very small slit in the scoop in a strategic place where it goes on the carb, I bent the scoop slightly where I had cut the slit so that it would only go onto the carb in one spot. No screws and it never moved. If you look at a Holley it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out. Sorry I don't have any pics of it and that boat is gone.
