Holman Moody air scoop
« on: June 12, 2018, 01:00:56 AM »
Certainly not mine but it's a rare piece. Looks like you can bid online or attend the Kansas City auction on Saturday

   It's not difficult to install . Set it on the carbs and tighten two wing nuts. These were for marine engines primarily.

 A few things anyone bidding might what to be aware of. That one is an original one piece Low/Medium riser spacing scoop and the most important feature is that it still has the flame arrestors present and the openings have not been modified. The down side is that there are several reproductions that have significantly reduced what these can sell for and the "rarity" to own one. All of these I'm aware of have been for Low/Medium riser but Holman Moody did make an original version for Hiriser which is quite a find.

Check out the dual quad intake nestled in the rest of the listings.

There are a couple of additional pictures, but I don't see any with the important details, like the carb list numbers, etc.

   The carbs have straight boosters so they would be 652s ( C3AE-C) at the very most. Possibly old 1850s with the special covers on the secondary vacuum pods. Not High riser carbs for certain.

They actually look like C3AE-BJ/BK carbs based on the fuel bowls.

 Yes it could be those too. No way they are high risers though.
