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?

Here's what I made my copy from. I've tried all different types of blockers ie: angle, flat, tapered......this style worked the best for my placecraft. The leading edge of the grate is about 3/8" above the keel. I'll try to get some pics of the loader grate that I made and howit sits in the boat.....

Wes,

Missed you boy's at the river this weekend, but had a good time seeing your dad. Are you going to have that baby out in a week or two ?

Yep. Its been welded up and remachined to accept standard 4 bolt loaders.
The old Berkeley low profile Super Jet R intake was cast with a four bolt loader socket and that is the one we're running. The loader socket dimensions are slightly smaller than other four bolt intakes, but, the hole positions are essentially the same.

I'm currently looking for one of the old Berk Super Jet R low profile intakes in good condition ... if anyone knows of one, or, has one they want to sell, PM me.
