    I'm fighting a similar battle, I'll be all ears on this one. All I could come up with is epoxying a filter plate into the bottom of the scoop.

    This is a common complaint by people that purchase a scoop from Harwood and many of the other manufacturing companies... The scoops they sell are just that, a scoop...No base plates.. Usually, to have a base plate made will run you $125.00+ ..Then if it's for a single carb you will need mounting hardware like this... These run $135.00+/-




    Then you will still need to cut the 5" carb cutouts & cut holes in the plate for the float bowl adjustment screws.. They are alittle more work & money than most think.. I've seen Harwood scoops that need quite abit of prep work prior to painting, which adds to the cost of painting it... So, when it's all said & done you will have at least $400.00 + in to a scoop thats not painted or ready to mount.... Oh... You will still need a flame arestor so you can add another $50.00/$75.00 apiece to the overall cost

    I've seen something like that before....I sure hope it comes in a open plenum version as opposed to the 4 hole deal. Is that the only way??? Is that how a dooley would attach too??

    That's the way they come..They mount underneath the carb and most carbs are made that way also.....Yes, it will work on a dooley scoop..

    Custom scoops get pricey.

    Call dooley for a scoop tray. I sent my scoop to them and they made a tray to fit perfectly for my dual carb deal.

    If yours is for a single carb.

    Jegs and summit both sell scoop trays that look very nice. They also sell hardware to attach the scoop to the tray and you will need hardware to attach the tray to the carb or manifold.

    Here is what will be needed for a single carb deal from jegs Instead of dzus fasteners you can bolt it into the tray but I don't trust myself with trying hold a nut inside a scoop blindly with a chance of dropping it into the carbs.

    here is a single carb scoop tray. $99


    here is a single carb tray mounting assembly $69


    dzus fasteners for scoop to tray $28.99


    dzus retainers for mouting into tray $8.99

    This is how i did mine, I have no idea if others would consider it right or not but it has given me no problems, and it hasn't blowen off yet so i like it. I think total time from raw material to mounted was about an hour or less, total cost less then 100.00

    You can either buy a tray (that will likely cost you a 100 alone) as others have mentioned or if you have the tools make your own.

    simple layout of the carb centers, holes for the float adjusters, and 4 extra holes directly inline with the 4 outter most carb mounting holes and drill them all out, Then i used 4 pieaces of aluminum round bar from the tray to the carb bases and bolted down using a large fender washer to distibute weight and a lock washer (i chose to bolt down vs studs so there is no chance of anything working loose and getting into the carb), layout and drill some holes in your scoop for the dzus fastners (i used self ejecting) then put the scoop on the tray, line it up transfer the holes and mount your dzus springs and your done.

    This is why window shopping is a good idea, Sangster makes real nice scoops and are pretty damn affordable IMO!
    I used to have pics of his stuff, maybe he will throw a few up!
    What scoop did you buy?

    I did my harwood with a tray, and mounting hardware from Jegs. Also used Dzus fittings and I can have the scoop on and off in seconds if need be. Real trick setup.
