[Healeys] Tapping SUs for air filters

This setup makes air cleaner removal easy - I was running this setup before I modified my cleaners for my DMD manifold:

I bolted 5/16" coupling nuts inside my K&N filters. Bolts coming thru the outside plate, then spacers, then the couplings resting against the inside of the inside plate.

The filters are attached from the inside of the carb tangs with 5/16" SS socket head (Allen) screws. These go through the tangs and engage threads of the coupling nuts.

For a wrench, I'm using a foot long, ball-end, T-handle Allen wrench.

Some ideas are here:
