MA 4-5 air cleaner bolt size

Post by HomesteadSlide » Wed Feb 27, 2019 8:17 pm

I went to Schmidt Airboat today and had a great experience, I bought an air cleaner to go on my Marvel Schebler MA 4-5 and I wasn’t aware that the carb was threaded where the air cleaner bolts up, does anybody have a size of screw that would be appropriate for bolting up to the carb ?

1/4 x 20...make sure ya use a short bolt on the 2 holes that are in the bowl so ya don't punch a hole in the bowl bottom or put 1/4 x 20 studs in those holes
