:yup: Excellent! I've built a couple variations of stands for that purpose using wood, but I like yours better! Any chance you'd care to share the lengths of the tubing to get the correct angle(s)?

Crude representation of the fixture. Built this thing about 12 years ago, had to drag it out and measure what was done. Basically a piece of 7” x 7” x 3/4” particle board (scrap) and some 3/16” ID aluminum tubing from Home Depot. Length is unimportant as long as you make the tubes long enough to have a fuel line attach to the float bowl drain and bend upward 180 degrees without a kink. Difference in length is about 1/4” with the inner tube stands being shorter. Drilled holes through the base and epoxied the tubes in. Took about 20 minutes and $5 to make.

Thanks kindly, and you're right, it is the difference in length that's important for getting the correct angle on the carbs; the spacing is also important for setting the carbs on the device. Good clear, detailed description!
