Yea, I have been looking and have not been even able to find one for sale right now, not to mention how much they are... I just noticed my younger brother just commented on my video about making one, he is a machinist so I am sure we can come up with something. I need to make a trip down to see him and we can come up with something. The last time I was there, my other brother who is a machinist helped and made a nice cap for my fuel filler.

Nice! I have all the CNC gear here to make the stuff, too. I have Jakes on mine and the regular tool won't fit without taking them off. Maybe there's a way around that, who knows.

Mine dumps lots of black smoke when starting from a dead stop. There are a couple of "throttle delay" systems Detroit implemented to delay the throttle to allow time for the boost pressure to build. One used an oil operated system and one used a boost pressure operated system. A lot of folks disabled them as it really delayed getting moving from a dead stop. It takes long enough without it

Yours has the oil operated system. It is between the two forward cylinders on the street side. It has a lever that slows the advance of the throttle as the oil drains out of the mechanism.
