scrap 124 carb air cleaner housing

I upgraded from a 32ADFA to 36ADL (with IDFs in between) a few years ago. As is documented here on Mira, the stock air cleaner housing interferes with the water choke on the ADL; it is in a different position than the ADFA. I really like the stock look of the air cleaner housing, so I cut off the offending inlet for blowby hose and the smaller inlet that sits at right angles, and foolishly threw it away. I figured I could just find a smaller elbow to go in the hole that remains. I did, made out of plastic, but it really is a kluge.

What I should have done is cut out the metal around the inlet with the inlet intact, then moved it to a spot closer to the DS fender, patching the hole in the original position.

So, I'm now looking for that piece, or the whole air cleaner base. I understand that a lot of these are junk, with the posts all wiggly. That's the kind I want, the kind you should have thrown away long ago :).

I have one of the metal ones from a 78 if you want it.
