Misfit baffle seal

Post by briankelly327 » Mon May 13, 2019 3:07 am

I was getting my prop balanced this weekend and noticed that the right air intake (from pilot seat perspective) baffle seal does not fit snugly into the air intake opening. The left air intake has a perfect fitting seal.

This would seem to bleed off ram air pressure and depressurize the baffles and reduce cylinder cooling.

Anyone else have a similar baffle seal? Seems odd not to fit snugly and catch all the airflow that comes thru the vent.
