    Default Crack in my intake housing.

    I have a crack that starts from the fin and runs up to my intake grate. Both sides of the fin are cracked. Im sure this is not good and need to know if it can just be welded up or do I need a new intake? It has been there for a few seasons and the boat is a spectra 20 day cruiser with stock 455. If I need a new intake, is there a place where you can get them at a good price? I saw berkeley has them for a grand and would like a cheaper option! The pump is a berkeley BTW.

    Default Intake crack

    I say weld it up but if you don't have a friend that can weld it up cheap for you it may cost more to have it welded than to pick up a used intake. If you keep an eye out in the parts spam you will see them from time to time for $100.00-$200.00. If you find a used one make sure it is the same casting as yours because Berkeley made several different intakes for various applications. Good Luck.

    I have a Berk intake out of a delta-bottom'd Crusader Tunnel. It's been machined for a shoe. I'd let it go for $100+ shipping....though the ride to Oregon from southern cal would likely be pretty spendy.
    The good news is that I'll include all attached gunk and 32 year old poxy putty at no extra charge
