The filter is Briggs and Stratton. The tubing is 1-1/4" plumbing drain trap parts in chrome plated brass.
The adapters I made of course.
I'll install it tomorrow on my '27

very pretty, Les. I've been following these threads and may do similar on my 23.

Thanks for the kind words
The size of the element appealed to me

My friends said I was having another brain fart, but why couldn't you put a small computer fan or what ever and blow air into the intake of a carburetor to work like a blower on big engines.

I sink it looks pretty drain good.

If I did it again I think I would take the pipes to the platers and have the chrome removed first. Usually they will do it for free as they recover the metal back onto their anode
I'll post the model number of the element later

Using a vaporizer exhaust manifold for the turbo is neat idea

Looks good!

The model # is on the filter, ebay, Amazon and others sell it.

Briggs & Stratton part # 496894S/272403S for 12.5-17.0 HP
I think the second half of the part number is for a green foam pre-cleaner that came in the package which I probably won't use. I guess if was driving in really awful conditions I would
The one I bought is genuine B$S part

Installed with a brace to the carb/manifold bold

Things get a bit "cozy" with a dipstick too!!

Completed installation
