Has anyone ever made a snorkel on a twin cylinder briggs? It seems like it is going to be alot harder than just a one cylinder motor and I am trying to get ideas on how to do mine.

Wouldnt be too hard since most twins run a single carb. You would have to make a flange, then a pipe going up.

With my Vanguard it didint come with an air filter and the parts for my model are hard to find and expensinve. I just plan on mounting a cone filter onto it.

The problem I'm
Having is if I just have like one PVC pipe coming up for the snorkel then I don't think I will have enough air flow I'm just not sure how to do it. I just used a rubber fitting on my single cylinder and that was easy to do.

If you are worried about air flow just make sure the inner diameter is the same size or bigger than the inner diameter on the inlet of the carb. 2-3" ID should be good enough.

Make sure you also have a way water cant get into the snorkel as well.

Might wanna get a T joint and an end cap, one way for an inlet, one to the card, the a small 1/2 section (longways) for a short water collector.

Could do like ARMY humvees and Toyota rally trucks did and have a "scoop" at the top with some mesh.

Looks good.
It should do the job.
How did you mount the pipe to the carb inlet?

I took some flat steel and drilled two holes in it and put the pipes through it and siliconed it to seal it up. I also took a piece off the original air filter to seal it between the steel and the black plastic inlet
