I agree, the 57 is more squat so it will fit easily, you will need to trim back the stud length, that's all.

I've seen two different 2bbl air cleaners on 57 motors, one like yours with the slots and one without.

Usually that would happen if the top cover with the 2 holes in it was lost. Looking at the AIM, it shows only one type.

Default air cleaner

The 56 models are about 57 1/2 inch and the 57 is only 5 1/2- 5 3/4 inch because of the hood. I made the mistake by not researching before ordering and I recieved a tall 56 for my 57 thats needs a shorter one. So now the hunt is on for a short 57 model and will be getting ris of the 56 model. Thanks Rick

AIM ? In the factory parts manual 3 '57 passenger air cleaners are listed, not counting Corvette, big trucks and 4bbl. They list: oil bath, HD oil bath, and one tht has no mention of oil bath. My answer was based on pictures of original '57 engines though and it is possible I guess one was a 3100.

AIM is short for Assembly & Installation Manual.
The page that shows the 2BC Air Cleaner is http://www.trifive.com/garage/57%20C...nual/221-4.gif
