I bet some stainless straps would be easy to fab up to go over the carb to do the same thing.

Or how about just using a 5/16" stud. Even a Grade 2 is good for 3900 lbs. tensile. I think you just had a case of not enough thread engagement and probably worn threads in the carburetor. It's not that big of a deal or a real problem to worry about - yet Twisted Evil . Once you get to around 40 lbs. boost however..........Clay

Shucks if your going to do that: go ahead and make the two crossed bars to look like a set of crossed femurs and then put a flat plate on top of that of a grinning skull.

Arrgh! Avast me hearties.

It was the first thing to enter my mind when I saw that bracket holding the hat on.

As far as that goes I have seen a number of times pictures on line of women wearing a metallic brassier that is nothing more than two cupping metal hands. Maybe you could buy a similar bra and use the two hands to hold the hat on? That aught to get a conversation going at a car show.

Or maybe I will shut up now, as I just realized I was looking at page one of these posts.
