I'd also suggest the Clancy. With some of the others, the cores are thinner, or the neck doesn't line up with the engine, or the height of the inlet is too short.

I agree with everyone on the Clancy... I took everyone's advise and that's what installed on mine... Perfect fit and good quality. Worth the few extra dollars.
I'll probably wind up buying another one for my new cub, has a very light leak
