OPTIONS AND MODIFICATIONS
Now, I will sand blast and weld it back up, then paint it. reassemble it and run a tee and vacuum line from the CI hood to this new pod on the snorkel. Notice the pin location in the new pivot point on the new condition. roughly 3/8" higher. It is loose so the flap operates freely and seals tight in the snorkel. This pic shows it in the no-vacuum condition, when vacuum is applied it opens and yes, an engine will start while this is closed. The second the engine starts, a vacuum opens the flap. The flap is not flipped or rotated, just moves up to a new pivot point. It all works! I will post finished product pics when I get them.
