Then read THIS thread by 63Comet, he mounted a weber 38/38 directly on the log.

That's a pic of a direct mount setup...no adaptor to speak of. This setup on a Maverick will fit under the stock hood. I've never seen one using the 2 into 1 adaptor not require cutting the hood.

I actually had a H/W 5200 mounted on an adapter from stovebolt originally on the log head. It fit with no problem on my 200 BB. I had pics, but I deleted them when I installed it directly to the log.

The 200 is not as tall as the 250, thus the problem with hood clearance when using an adaptor with the 250 motor.
