Intake Boot for Eldo With Amals
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:27:12 AM »
Hi, folks.

For a long time, it has been impossible to find NOS intake boots for Eldos that came from the factory with Amal carbs during the Dellorto strike (of 1973, I believe).  I  just had an email exchange with Greg at Clauss Studios about sending my old/damaged intake boot to him for reproduction, and he told me that someone had just sent him a decent one to work with.  This is fantastic news for the hobby, and I wanted to send out a note of thanks to whoever sent it to him.  I missed that opportunity in 2016 when Don G was kind enough to send me a perfect original that he had, and needed it back before I got around to forwarding it on to Greg for reproduction (entirely my fault).

Bottom line is that the reproduced Amal intake boot will be available for purchase within a couple of months (give or take).  Great news for the community, and we definitely owe someone our thanks.  Hopefully that person will stand up and take a bow.

Cheers,
Shaun

Fred on the Loopframe list responded to my message there and indicated that he had sent the boot to Greg.  Thanks, Fred!
