    All, I searched but could not find an answer to the following:

    What is the stock/default clearance between the top of the plenum and the engine lid for an 82 Mondial 8? I need a precise measurement; 1/2 inch?1 inch? 1.5 inch? 2 inch?

    Right now the engine is out and engine lid as well. I am in middle of EFI and engine rebuild. I want to know if there is enough space to add a TPS on top of the air intake attached to the plenum. A TPS is probably 1 inch or so thick.

    Thanks and stay healthy!

    If I still had an 8, and some kids... I'd ball up their Play-Doh and put on the plenum. Then gently close the engine cover until it locks. Next I'd open the cover and measure the compressed thickness of the Play-Doh.

    Sorry that this doesn't help right now.

    Anybody with a Mondial 8 with engine installed care to do the experiment to determine clearance between top of plenum and engine lid?
