Default Hurricane AC and Horseshoe breather assembly

I am in the putting on the hurricane and horseshoe breather. According to the instructions I first put on the support bracket which has holes for the breather bolts to go through and holes that line up with the holes on the carburator.

Problem I am running into is getting the bracket flush on the carb base. I got a new gasket in there but the hose that brings the fuel into the carb runs along the side of the left breather hole and prevents the bracket from mounting flush.

Any suggestions? I figgered if I posted here either Dan would see it and respond or someone else who has installed the Hurricane would respond.

I switched to a mikuni when I did mine, but as I recall the fuel inlet was moveable with a little persuasion, and I was able to sneak the fuel line in. Perhaps the stock carb inlet has some room to move also?

I went out and looked at mine. The fuel hose should be slid back between the part of the head that is rounded, where the breather bolt threads in. And the top of the carb. My bracket doesn't even touch the hose. Is it a Drag Specialties bracket? Thats what they sent me. If you REALLY need me to I can take a pic and sent it to you.

I have a Mikuni on mine now but when I first put the Hurricane air cleaner on I had a CV 40 carb. I remember that I rerouted the fuel line and I also used an extra washer on each side between the carb bracket and the cylinder heads. I did not have the horse shoe breather though I have the drag specialties one with hoses and a filter. I believe that I saw some pictures of Turbotas set up with a horsehoe breather though.

I'm assuming its the Buell bracket they supplied? If so then I used the same one and I got it from NRHS. It is a little tight on the fuel hose. I put extra washers between the bracket and the heads and then it only pressed lightly on the hose, in fact its not the actual hose its the cover for it and the hose inside is under no pressure.

Its a tight fit. I have a picture in my gallery of how it came together on mine. You can see part of the carb top, the carb bracket with the fuel hose in behind it, and one end of the horseshoe. It looks a little pinched, but I think that is just the corregated covering to the fuel line, and the line itself is not pinched.

I hope this is helpful.

Do you have the chrome or black bracket? The horseshoe does not work with the chrome bracket only the black ones.

That picture is exactly what my set up looks like Rod. I'm waiting for a warmer day to get back into the garage to play around with it.
