I learned from a Phazer owner this weekend that the plastic carb cover carb and air box are a bitch to remove when servicing the carb. The back of my part is filled in. I wonder if I should extend it down further (closer to the hood) so an owner just could remove that cover from the sled totally. I’d still leave a gap for cabinet heat to escape. That way carb work would be a snap. Does that louvered cover have a purpose I don’t understand? Is this a good idea?
