    Default Identifying Berk 'R' intake

    What should one look for? Does anyone know the casting # off hand?

    My super jet intake has a R cast into the top.

    Whats that suposed to mean? if it's on the internet it's true..... A long gone item, getting harder to come by.

    You will notice they don't acept standard under water hardware.

    H-2780 is the casting number on mine. Sleek is correct, it wont take standard hardware. It has 2 long runners underneath and it takes 6 bolts to bolt up the loader.

    The superjet is the same thing, just accepts standard hardware.

    The pockets under the shoe and the odd loader mounting is a dead giveaway, they look very different than a standard intake, Youll know one when you see it.

    Thanks for the responses gentlemen.
    Nope, not an 'R', just a stocker I guess. It's machined for a shoe and rideplate and has had some blending done to it. And whoever installed the shoe must have run outta anti-seize because the old slotted bolts are stuck.

    Try some heat not a ton cause it can soften up the epoxy but enough to free it up. Big adjustable wrench on the screwdriver helps too.

    I finally got the intake out. They used slotted hardware on the shoe and rideplate. Lame. Two of the 4 rideplate bolts put up a serious fight, but I finally got 'em. 3 of the 4 shoe bolts still won't come out. Should be easier with the intake out....maybe.
