    Michael, I don’t remember the actual clearance btw reeds and crank, but if my memory serves me right, you can run both stuffers and a shaved mainfold. The problem is the angle of the reedcages. If you want to move them really close to the crank, i think you better cut the reedcages at an angle otherwise they will tend to hit the roof of the intake runner, especially on no1. To be sure, I need to check if I have written down any measurements.
    Why don’t you try cut 3petal cages? I think CCMS offers them to fit the Looper!? I have wanted to try for myself, but I haven’t gone there yet, mainly because if the low rpms I am turning. On the other hand, I have done so much stuffing that I fear the wider leafs w/o support could cave in due to increased pressure!?

    Curious what the measurements are if you have them..
    I'll stick with what i have don't want to start something else enough going on and they are put together I have boyesen reeds installed and between milling front half and the stuffing I did already think I'm good for now..
    Don't really want to push it with cutting reed cages etc.
    Im just hoping to get them back together while I can..
