    HD-6 support set

    Page 9 of the Moss catalogue shows a two-piece "support set" (p/n 376-098) which consists of two arms going between the intake manifold and the carb dashpots, both for the standard HD4's or M-kit HD6's. I am in need of one of these arms (1/2 of the set) and Moss is back-ordered. If anyone is willing and able to sell either one arm or the pair please reply or contact me off-list at: michael.oritt@gmail.com/305-793-9467.

    Since posting #1 I realized the carbs are H6--not HD6, and that the two support arms are of different lengths. I seek the rear one which is sort of Z-shaped.

    It is a metal Z-shaped flat metal support-stay about 5-3/8" long that runs between the intake manifold and the dashpot for the rear carb on an H6 carb.
    Another lister has located a spare and has sent one to me.
