Great! I'm looking forward to ruling out one more potential area for intake leaks.

Default Flanges 'r Us



We started shipping orders today and will ship some more tomorrow. Still waiting on some larger CT clamps for the carb hoses. Will see some late next week I hope and some more to follow so right now, we can only fill the FI orders using the smaller OD silicone hoses.

I got some clamps in for the carb hoses yesterday but all sold out again now. I just ordered some more, cleaning out the supplier. Ditto on the 1.75 silicone hose. These should be here Monday if lucky and I can fill the rest of the orders. Sorry for the delays. I had not anticipated this sort of demand.

This made installation pretty easy, as it all wanted to stay together.
Got my parts last week and installed a couple on the Rocket today. I tried Mike's method above (well, similar) as well as "my" original method to compare. First off, either one is comically easy to do on a straight tube, parallel valve. Hard to complain about one method being "harder" when at worst, it's less than a 5 minute job per tube. That said, I think Mike's method of pre loading the seal assembly into the retainer and tube, then bolting the whole thing to the head is the best way to go. This is opposed to hanging the tube/retainer by the two bolts THEN slipping the O ring assembly into the gap. The one caveat to this is that I load the o ring onto the inner retainer (looks like a little mototcycle tire) and drop this into the tube retainer (or slip it into the gap). The inner retainer (or "rim" if you prefer) has a concave groove cut which holds the O ring pretty securely (like a tire).

At any rate, its just easy, easy, easy, and I expect this is the end of the age induced induction leaks.

Good pix Mike. Thanks for posting.

We are getting a lot of feedback from users saying their EGTs have evened up in cruise, idle is smoother etc. Some people must have had some truly massive leaks before. I could see the idle/ part throttle improvements perhaps but it's hard to believe there could be such a change in cruise at near WOT where there is little delta P between the inside and outside of the joint.

Anyway, we're happy they work so well. Continuing to ship more this week as our other parts come in.

Thanks to everyone for your orders and feedback.

Received some of the big CT clamps for the carbed engines late yesterday. Will ship a few of those outstanding orders today.

Another run of flanges will be CNC'd later this week.

Looked on the web site but couldn't find a way to order a set.
Could you put me on the list for a set? Gold flanges, IO-320 E2D.

PM me if you need any other info.

To all those who've placed orders, I haven't forgotten about you. We're shipping sets as fast as we can given the large backlog of these and CPIs/ EM-5s.

Summertime is often a slower time for us. Not this year. Thanks to all for keeping us hopping!
