The device is actually mounted backwards (if you had the instructions you would know that, but real men don't read instructions anyway). The purpose of that is to let the sparks out when the condensor goes bad and the points begin to ark, there is a "shower" of sparks that flow out the exit horn, looks kind of like the Northern Lights, very pretty at night, but you still need to change the condensor.

I believe the exhaust air is forced back thru the intake tube against the inside surface, forming a vortex around the intake air, thus creating a cooling effect. I also think the sound givin off by this device, once the optimum ground speed is reached, and the vortex is operating correctly, would also keep Deer and other animals off the road, or maybe not. Maybe thats why it never became more popular? Huh? I wish I had the instructions.

That's a neat air intake. So where did you put the now warmed air exhaust? Doug

Hey Brent, The cover we found was out of my price range, I think the seller caught on, but I found something even better!! It looks to be an NOS fitting, with the original velosity cone still atached!! I had to mount it on my ST this morning just to see how it looks. I have to tell ya I was so excited I almost pee'ed on the floor. (it's been a long winter) I do like the idea about using Nitrogen, I need a bottle that will fit in the oil can holder and... I'll have to post pictures when it's done.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know I REALLY appreciate the postings and the photos. You've made the event come alive for those of us that couldn't be there! You are definitely 'Keepin'm Hummin'. Thanks again! So, did anyone buy the air cooled points cover? I would think liquid nitrogen would be better :-)
