    I have seen Badgers on eBay at times. I am not sure if they are being reproduced.

    Mine were NOS from the 60's. As far as I know they are not being reproduced. They do pop up on eBay once in a while but if you want a set expect to pay for them. The two barrel sets of three scoops routinely sell for between $300 and $500. I am not sure how much the four-barrel ones sell for or how often they come up for sale.

    If anybody cares, there is an adapter for the Weber 32/36 that allows for the use of a traditional two barrel air cleaner

    Cal Custom made some that were similar but those are Badgers. I have the same set of three and the original boxes with the typewriter instruction sheets from the 60's

    As an engineer I looked at the airflow area around the cool trad bell. It looked small, like 1/2 inch to the intake diameter. So I looked around. looked around. The Edmunds ( the real ones ) looked cool. So it looked like the increase in intake area therefore, reducing pressure drop, I over did by buying a double tall Edmunds,

    The engine feels like runs better. I guess the cool factor may be gone. However, I like it.

    I now know that the regular reproduction Edmunds, with a modern filter, is all a 3 Edelbrock “94’s” manifold requires on 276 inch flathead . The Navarro 3x2 intake is as good as it gets.

    Thinking outside the frog.

    So while fuming over the violation the city sent me today for too many vehicles on my property, I relaxed by more carving on these repurposed electrical dinguses I got at the recycle yard . Still might need some shortening but they may end up usable. Or in the trash..
