Hey folks. Im working on a 84 Evo for a mate, after pulling the carb, this spacer and gauze filter fell out. I've never seen anything like it, the spacer ain't no thing but what is the filter?

The carb is much more modern HD carb (don't know the model right now) but it also has am S&S intake manifold. Thanks guys.

Aftermarket dodad that's supposed to give you better fuel atomization.
I always figured they just restricted flow. Also looks like they could come apart and wreak havoc with your top end.

They are pretty thick, I've never seen one come apart. I run one on a Dellorto DHLA and it took a slight stumble out. I don't think it's a "snake oil" type of thing, they do serve a purpose. For a stock setup, I'd say any difference it does make (if any) won't be extrmeme by any means. With the longer intake, I find it keeps the fuel from pooling and does in fact break up (atomize) the fuel.

I have the System II Atomizer on the 52...

It's the screen device which further mixes fuel at the face of the manifold..

Being the 52 is running a elbow the Atomizer is at the intake....
On the other end of the elbow is this critter...



The Turbulator

What it does (I Hope) is turns the intake runner (elbow) into a violent mixing chamber. The heavier fuel particles are directed away from the sides of intake walls back to the center of air flow.



So far so good with the way it runs....Been many years ago when I installed those Gizmos...;)...They still hang.....:cool:

thats a large diameter wire gause hes used , they usually 100 x 100 = 10000 holes per square inch .
when calculating the area of the of the manifold versus the area taken up by the wire mass , the gauze should be curved and have little restriction.

that one is bunched up around the edges and equivalent to a smaller diameter throat and probably restricting.
I had 1 years ago ,good at speed but wasnt to good at starting , the mesh would be wet so maybe with the right carb + choke.
its the same as a yost tube except the fuel is smashed against the mesh instead of sucked thru fine holes.

The vortex plate looks interesting.
Ive got a ford model T holley vaporiser , uses manifold heat to vaporise what ever fuel goes in. Fordson tractors had them too, run on what ever fuel youve got at hand.
