Dear Ed, In the future, please identify the model Cessna, and aircraft serial number when requesting assistance. That will help me focus my efforts.
I sent SNL85-24 to your email address.
Happy Flying.

STEVE ELLS replied to the topic 'Carb heat extraction point' in the forum. 2 days ago

Hi Gary;
If you can determine who fabricated your new exhaust stacks/collectors, they can most likely supply you with a shroud that will fit your new parts.
The other option is to remove the plug, if the removal won't damage the shroud. This should allow you to use heat extracted by that shroud as your carb heat source.
The sticking point is: is the new muffler a similar size to the old part? This is important because there must be enough surface area to supply the amount of heat needed to comply with certification regulations; and to de ice your carburetor in all foreseeable conditions.
The carb and cabin heat systems work by taking in ram air, circulating it around the outside of what some call a muffler and then ducting it to the carburetor heat box or the cabin. There are 2 ram air inlets on your airplane; they must both be open and connected to the shroud.
Let me know if I can help further.
If I'm still missing something, please reply; attaching photos helps.
Steve
