Carb intake adapter
Vegas Carts used to make an adapter to connect the clone carb to the OEM/stock Club Car airbox. I had been holding off on buying one, thinking there was no hurry. When I finally decided to get it, it appears I was a month late as Vegas Carts has stopped making/selling them.
So I thought I would see if I could make their 32mm Billet adapter work. What I needed was an adapter that would mate the 32mm adapter to the front of the carb. I drilled the two holes for the carb studs and then traced the two different gaskets on each side. This is a piece of 1/2″ aluminum plate.
I set my hand router to a little over 1/4″ depth of cut and then slowly started routing out the material. Here is the carb side:
Once both halves were routed, I was left with the sharp edges that represented the differences of the two sides:
Some rough blending with the dremel:
And then cut it out:
All cleaned up:
This is where it is installed:
The last thing I needed to do was modify the 32mm intake. This was made to fit against the cylinder head where the studs are a larger diameter. Since I am using this out at the end of the studs where they are smaller in diameter, I have this problem:
I popped out one of the metal spacers from the stock air assembly, cut it down and fit it into the adapter:
