So is the female part here a standard CPC part threaded into a flange, or is the whole part custom with some CPC internal components and button?

I've always wanted to get rid of the crossover but I didn't think I could still utilize all of the available fuel. Thanks for this info. And I'm also in for some disconnects when they become available.

We're making a new CNC machined hard anodized aluminum housing that will feature CPC internals.

Those are some tiny channels for aluminum, aren't they? Need me to bust out some FEA tools?

Using a Y connector up by the carbs. Instead of the cross connection , Won't some fuel be trapped in one side when air is drawn out the other ?
or am I over thinking this ? Paul

You might leave a few onces behind, but not enough to offset the convenience of removing the crossover. Of course, with quick disconnects the crossover doesn't seem like such a drag anymore...
