So I found a length of conduit at my local hardware store that worked perfect to sand down and fit into the clamp of a VM18 with the plastic bushing. It allowed me to create my own intake for my Hobbit out of a Morini header, 3/4 inch radiator hose, and the homebrewed adapter. I have enough pieces left to cut them up and maybe make 3 or 4 more. It needed to be either A) sanded on the outside of the pipe to fit into the carb/bushing or B) have the plastic carb bushing sanded out.
I can just cut and mail you a 1.5" long piece for like $5 shipped, or I will sand it down to the right dimension to fit right into the carb plug and play style for $10 shipped.
