    I managed to score an original '57 4 bbl air cleaner, but when I opened the box, the lower part had sand inside around the edges. It appears to come out of the horse hair air cleaner element whenever I shake it a bit. Obviously, I don't want that to continue if I were install it on my newly...

    I'm just starting a rebuild on a 1955 2 door 150 wagon with a 235 we drove in high school. I'm getting ready to put the engine back together and am cleaning up the snorkel air cleaner that is standard on an IL 235. Where the air cleaner clamps to the carburetor, inside the air cleaner, there is...

    Okay I just received a beautiful oil bath air cleaner which i purchased off of ebay today. It looks so good that I do not want to modify it but I need it to fit my Holley four barrel. The carb opening for the 56 air cleaner is smaller than my Holley mount area. All that said, I am looking for...

    On my 55, the air cleaner rests to the side of the carb, what bracket is needed to secure it? It is just kind of sitting there only attached to the carb. I think I'm missing something. What else is supposed to hold it in place? Sorry if this is literally the dumbest question.

    Hello all. My build is coming right along and I am looking for stickys/pics of what you guys have done/are doing for air systems? I am running the LS2 6.0 with the truck intake. I have seen a few "cool" ideas like running the Spectre inline filter with a polished horn sticking through the...

    I searched many of the threads and great advise in previous posts: general guidance is to move to a paper or reusable modern filter. While I continue to search for an off the shelf replacement I cleaned my low mileage original one up. Based on the photos below, what is the general consensus...

    I'm new to the forum and recently decided to help a neighbor with a 57 bel air with rochester single barrel carb. the bracket is missing that fastens the original air cleaner to the top of the carb. Any thoughts on best way to deal with this? The carb was rebuilt - except the bracket of course -...

    Hi. I have a 57 Belair 283, auto with a 2 jet carb. I rebuilt the old one once before and am not happy with it. The housing around the accel pump is warped and does not seal or line up well. It runs fine, except when you press on the gas! I purchased a rebuilt unit and have one problem...
