Can anyone give me the distance between the screw holes on the air filter on their dual carb set up. I'm trying to see if the IPD air filters for dual carbs will work on my Penta carbs. I'm trying to go cheap and when you say you boat carbs the price doubles automatically.

Thanks,
Matteson

While I chase the numbers you seek would you post pics of your current carb/filter setup?

Thanks.

This is a representation of my set up. The one I have didn't come with filters and I can't swap in the B23 until I have some filtration. I saw these and I thought they'd work well for my application. The carbs on the Penta are the Solex downdraughts, if that helps.

If the Solex is 52mm this filter...

...shows the holes much farther apart than the 2-hole SU paper throw-away which are available online other than ipd.
