Greetings fellow champ drivers! I have a 1969 7KCAB with the 2 piece cowling. I have run into this frustrating exercise every time I pull the lower cowl for an oil change, annual, etc. I don't know about all of you, but it takes me multiple attempts to get the flexible coupling to slide over the intake "just right" so I don't have to snake my hand into there and try to manipulate it over the flange with a tool (long curved pick). I am fearful that that process may poke a hole into it or tear it. I have replaced the old one with a new piece of tubing (cut to the same width as the old one) which seems a little more rigid, but it is still folding under. I have to take the lower cowl off, put back on too many times for a good fit to think this is "the way it is". Any tips, tricks, incantations, threats will be appreciated.
