I'm curious... The nitrile hoses you supply. are they any more flexible than the standard Lycoming parts? The Lycoming part seems to be both thicker and stiffer than what is needed for this task.
We are supplying Superior 08-00580 for the 1.5 inch tubes and OEM Lyc PN 69603 hoses for 1.75 inch tubes on carbed engines. I didn't spend much time trying to source other suitable suppliers for the carbed hoses.

Trevor was able to squeeze in another batch of flanges today before running other parts booked in a couple weeks ago.

I will run these to the anodizer tomorrow. Thank you to all the people who've contacted us to be placed on the order list. May be able to ship some of these out later next week if the anodizer is not too busy.

Good news. The anodizer was not too busy so I should have the flanges back by mid week.

Thanks for the follow-up, Ross. I spent most of tonight working on the engine and gave these induction tube clamps much thought... Perhaps they will be on the list for the next oil change.

Concerning the welding of the angle valve tubes- mine were factory welded about an inch down from the flange. I simply cut through the weld with a band saw, replaced the clamps and re welded. With a TIG at the ready, each tube took maybe 10 minutes to modify (not including paint dry time). I did not find it necessary to weld the tube in situ. The band saw cut was easy enough to re index. Really easy.

I like easy! My TIG work is getting better, but not this ready yet.

One of our customers just reported back that the Superior Cold Air Induction setup uses a tube which is expanded out to 2 inches so they are .250 larger than the factory type tubes and aren't compatible.

Expanded out (tapered) at the sump end? If so, then a cut and weld like I did would work?

Yes cutting and welding will work just fine. The only thing that needs to change is the size of the rubber sleeve and the clamps. The rest of the tube is 1.75" in diameter. See picture below.
