I just use some kind of 3/16 to 1/2 inch barbed fitting about a inch long or turn one down like this one in the pic so it's staight with no threads or anything on it. I grind the head a little so it lays in a groove more to the side so it clears the carbs or T/B's a little better.I drill a 1/2 inch hole down in the casted hole where it sits and JB Weld it in to place.

Do a mock up before the epoxy. Grinding the head to get more angle is a good idea. I didn't and had an issue with the fitting not having enough angle to clear the black throttle cover on the stock carbs with the hose attached. I had to clearance the plastic throttle cover with a grinder.

Yea I couldn't remember if I needed to or not. Most of the heads I have been doing use FCR carbs now and they don't need to be like that. If you look at the pic on the info I send out it is off to the side but I don't think that one was moded to make it lay over further. That was a pic of Chase's off the other site.

could i use a 90 degree fitting ?so it would clear my throttle housing..also when i drill a 1/2 inch hole i should drill it straight and let the fitting lay in the hole sideways right?just trying to get this clear before i mess something up.thanks again for everyones help.

A 90* might work, but you need to check it first before epoxy. A straight barb fitting will work fine if you grind the head so you can lay it over like in FST's pic.

After drilling the hole and setting the fitting in place just make sure the passage is clear of any epoxy.

Just another option... you can tap it with I believe a 3/4 npt and get a propane type of 90 to work. It takes a little effort to try and locate a 90 that is the right lenght, but then you can always go back and put a plug in if you decide to do something different later (can't imagine why, but it's an option). Note, there's not a lot of threads there when you do it.

We've got it back together, but still haven't done a break in on the bbk. waiting on some larger main jets, then we'll start running.

You could do what sandjunkie did, he got one of our michael fittings and then used the yfz can.

One guy who used our STOP kit on his 840 said he didn't have issues with it but we have not tested it.

I didn't but someone else did and sandjunkie just used the fitting instead of having to drill, tap glue etc.
