    I have just barely made journeyman on this website so you will need to tell me which one is original for a '46 code 671. Mine did not have one on it. Are they for sale and if so how much?

    You and Pipeliner are welcome to drop by and use my booth anytime! Now you have given me another idea for a post. I have a series of pictures from the remaking of a large Devilbiss paint both that I re-purposed for painting welders. I purchased the booth, which was in a scrap pile, for $500 from a company that used to make cabinets for the old bar video games such pong and pacman. Do you think I should post them?

    I will post the paint booth project for welders as soon as I can round up the pictures, add a few new ones and organize them in a coherent narrative. Thanks for the interest!

    Originally a hand crank only model would've had the one on the left. The hang down offset tube allowed clearance for the crankcase breather pipe on the left side of the valve cover. That 1/2" elbow and pipe is what it left the factory with. If you notice, later model shorthoods with electric start have the thin wall one piece crankcase breather "tube" on the right side of the valve cover (like all later sa200's). Plus, the "newer" version shorthood oil bath has the heat tube option.

    These were just images I found to show the differences. Not mine. The older hang down snorkel type are very hard to find. I've seen both types go for crazy money in the past. To the right person, your guys price would be like a blue light special at K-mart.

    For the amount of sweat equity you have in your shorthood project, it deserves an original of either version.

    You are right Pipeliner, I think I will go back to my old short hood used parts supplier and see if he has a snorkel type. If he does I will buy it and paint it to match either the gray or nectarine candy.
