Air Filter Bypass Failure and My Fix  by Box Axsom
Home > Builder Modifications > Air Filter by-pass failure and my fix

Attached are photos of the failed latch system and the fix.  I explained the situation in the Forums but basically all I found was the magnet clinking to a plate nut when I was reinstalling the cowling after an oil change.  We had recently returned from Sun 'n Fun before the oil change.  I have the photographs of the original installation before the failure if you need them .  I will have to scan them into the computer first.   I followed the instructions very carefully in the installation.
