Replacement base for type b

Post by benscale160 » Wed Nov 07, 2018 9:13 am

The base flange of my horn has a 2" FIP threads. Based on my research, this flange matches the bolt patten of the horn. My guess is the original base with the debris screen is long gone. So I guess just put a 2" to 1" bushing in the base and goto town. I suppose I could cut out a piece of wire mesh and mill a slot for a make shift debris screen.

Is this really needed?

Thanks,
Ben

Considering that the piston might be damaged by debris and that replacements are so hard to come by, any steps taken to protect it are just smart.
