Default Anyone else have this issue?

Not sure how to correct ... alter the filter or somehow enlarging the snorkel at the forward edge ? (RV7A with horizontal induction)

Not sure what we're seeing here...assembled filter brackets on the snorkel, off the snorkel, etc.?

In short, to answer your question...uh, no. But can't tell what the fix would be without more info.

Filter is in the snorkel brkts... but is compressed at the forward edge (resulting in the distortion in the filter pleats).
Ended up cutting a slice in the snorkel at the front to let it open up a little.
I'll have to glass over it later, but it seemed to allow the filter to set in to snorkel without getting "squished".
Thanks :-)
