Hi all,

Great site. I've searched around and not found anything too descriptive, so here goes. My RT's previous owner evidently removed the insert from the intake bellows. As such, I have no idea what the insert was made of or how big it should be. I'm tempted to take some aluminum roof flashing, roll it up into a cylinder and put some screws through it to hold it in place, then insert it in the bellows.

As it is now, the bellows collapses and will likely destroy itself in no time.

I'd like to keep the bellows as it will likely move a couple inches in any direction, IMHO. Would a non RT replacement from the junkyard work?

Thanks!

My guess is you can take the insert from a standard bellows and put it into your R/T (Magnum) bellows.

Obviously, as you can see, that was a dumb move. The insert in addition to keeping it from collapsing, also keeps the inside smoother for better air flow.

I haven't checked, but I would bet the Magnum bellows is probably not available (new) anymore.

Thanks for the response!

I pulled it apart and it has 4 rings which are supposed to pop into the bellows. The rings had all come out of their grooves. I placed them back in their grooves and am hoping for the best. It appears that I can get a factory item for about $80, which spells junkyard to me.

Thanks again,
