Glen;

Do you have one for a 5 ball? If so I am interested in that.

Gary, Sorry, no. Does anyone have the diameter of the air intake recepticle of the 1911-12 kingston six ball? If so please post it Thanks, Glen

Gary, Is your 5 ball air intake on an angle like the 4500 above or does it turn up? If it is on an angle i may be able to make them. Let me know the diameter of the air intake opening. Glen

It's at an angle like above, ID is 1 1/8". I need the pipe and the top part where it meets the manifold.

Val, I made one for my Holley 4500 from steel pipe. I found one whose OD was just a bit larger than required to slip into the air horn and turned it down on a lathe.
Gary, the original tubes for a 5 ball where not a solid pipe like what I described above. They were sheet metal wrapped around to make a tube. The seam where the two edges butted up together were not welded. The thickness of the tube is .035"
The tubes sold by the vendors for a 5 ball are a solid piece of pipe.

Gary, My 5 ball has an angled fitting 1.150 diam. Which is right? The kingston is 1.125

I'll be back tomorrow afternoon and will measure it closer. I'd prefer to have a tube made as the original.

Kim, Are those inside or outside dimensions. What does the pipe fit? Thanks Glen

Those are OD, the pipe is either 5 ball or 1910 Holley. The 1911 Holley uses a smaller diameter pipe.

Kim what is the dimention of the turned end on the pipe? Does the other end fit over the flange on the front bracket? If so what is the ID dimension?
And what is the length of the pipi and length of the cut?
Caccia's pipes fit inside the bracket shoulder, not over it.. That may not be right. What do you think?
