Thinking Help GTP air snorkel

Post  garza2014 on Sun Dec 13, 2015 2:59 pm

Hi

I need a way to keep the foam on top of the air snorkel, with the use tends to be lowered to the engine air inlet and shuts off the engine.



Thanks

Stick a straight pin through it and you should be good to go.

Alejo: Hey, you stole my idea for a RC car emoticon. lol!   Have you tried a TINY bit of rubber glue on the edges of the foam piece. Let it dry a few seconds, then push into the tube. Make sure that the tube is dry and clean of oil.   Try it. It may work for a while, then it will be full of dirt and debris and need to be replaced with a clean piece.

Good idea but I don't want to damage air snorkel, you mean place pin on top? Or through the plastic?
