    I thought "vaporous" was what fuel was all about, *M.A.D.* !

    Can't buy the cooling theory, sorry;
    By the way, is manifold icing real?

    Its a Scheb HS knob for sure {but they fit Linkerts, too}.

    That smells like an M21 bowl.
    More reserve?

    ....Cotten
    PS: The Linkert is just shy of 3/16" fatter inside than the Schebler "long" bowl.
    Perhaps reserve is why later potmetal Scheblers added the shoulder beneath?
    (Bottom left is the 'short' bowl that preceded the 'long', top right in attachment.)
    For 1940, bottom right, they equaled the Linkert capacity.

    [QUOTE=T. Cotten;179768]Here's another one that has me clueless, Folks!

    I believe that statement is becoming slightly rhetorical Cotten. A good natured haha.
    I don't totally believe the gas cooling theory, although it's a proven fact that cold gasoline works best at heat ranges where fuel is most unstable *(high rpm). It has been proven in Formula 1, drag racing and airplanes that cold gas produces more power than warm gas.

    I can relate the similarities in regard to sPeEdWaY Racing Motorcycles. Here's a couple of pictures without & with the carb cover. The purpose of the cover was to protect the carb from any foreign materials--but mostly dirt, and also to keep methanol temps consistent. Also, it directed excess heat from the cylinder, away from the carb. Racing is a mix of Superstition-Luck-Skill-Knowledge & Improvising. Take your pick Cotten, and get a good night sleep. (-:

    Its denser, right, *M.A.D.*?

    Cold air makes them jump too.

    (Come to think of it, if you've got cold air, you've probably got cold fuel as well, huh.)

    If a warm carb sux ponies, they should have fins!

    PS: Can't see your pics...

    Mercedes bought into Chrysler corp & added an air cleaner to the Dodge viper like MB used.It took incoming air & ran it thru plastic tube about 21ft to heat the incoming air.It added 25% to the viper horse power.

    Interesting Duffey. I found this because of your post...

    **Owners of this racing sleek two-door sports icon love the powerful V-10 engine whose performance can only be enhanced by the Viper Dodge cold air intake. An aftermarket tube system attaching to the engine, the part allows for cooler air to be sucked into the engine replacing outgoing overheated air. It also allows more air to enter the engine system, increasing capacity. The supercooled air contains more oxygen particles translating into increased engine combustion capability boosting horsepower and drive.

    **A product of quality engineering design, the Viper Dodge cold air intake increases fuel efficiency by creating greater combustion values due to the cooler oxygen molecules replacing hot air. It's a major benefit to drivers who love the energetic engine power of the Dodge Viper. One of America's favorite performance accessories, the cold air intake must fit the particular year, model and make to be effective.

    Hot or cold, i'm sure they all have their merits if applied correctly. I know my air cooled M/C's always run healthier when it's cooler.

    You'll just have to google benefits of hot and cold performance values in high performance applications like i did Cotten. I didn't make this up, and have no prior knowledge/experience of either-or. This is all a guessing game over a shroud over a...Link/Scheb?

    *P.s. Now...Is that snake oil Hot or Cold???

    Vipeing hot!

    PS: C'mon, it was a sales pitch.
    And a 25% horsepower increase is like adding up all the hop-ups in J.C. Whitney/Warshawski catalogs.

    PPS: I better patent this manifold, huh!

    Is this something you made?, it looks like it might work!

    Yes, Dave!

    It evolved slowly.

    I cannot say the cooling fins made any difference.
