    hey, like many here, i have problems with not enough space for my carb, looked around and found this, cheapy egg timer from a dollar store
    take off the back cover, the timing mechanism should be housed in a nice metal cup

    look how nice it is, drill many holes for the air flow, plus 2 holes to line up with the stiock screws

    the filter goes right in, and the plastic spacer goes on as usual

    you can mount it, it saves space like, 1/2 depth
    for rain you can cut up a soda or beer ;) can and soder it to the top like a cover :) hope you enjoy i know im happy i thought of it, the damn stock plasic cover bothers me anyway -paul

    YES! This is what I really dig- adaptive re-use, backyard engineering, and total creativity at it's best. Keep up the great work!
