"The Flute"

Drill the holes straight through the cross-tube, through top and bottom and side to side. Use tubing and hole sizes that don’t compromise the strength of the tubing and a total number of holes so their area is greater than the combined area of the bowl vents. If you have an air cleaner stud, use tubing big enough that a hole to pass the stud through the tube will not weaken it and pass the stud through the tube. 3/8” tubing with a ¼” stud and 7/16” tubing with a 5/16” stud. The hardware store has thin wall brass tubing that is excellent for this purpose.

I will stick to this and run the test when the season open. I really didn't mean to set off a conflict in you know where. Maybe add another 2 holes.

You said those were pushlock fittings, for what? Don't think I've seen those.

They are used in Tractor/Trailer air brake systems. All the newer stuff is now push lock for the air brake systems except the brake chambers of which are JIC 37 degree or just NPT due to vibration. They come in brass/stainless and plastic. The plastic ones are the ones most prone to fail which i replace the most with stainless or brass due to heat and vibration, ice and snow.
Many manufacturers.

Sorry about the link. That setup i posted has 3/8 air brake hose into the boots and pushes into the T's and locked in place. Push the little brass collar back and out comes the hose.

Here is mine. As you can see, need to pressurize bowl with boost pressure.
Any comments on?
