air cleaner

Post by pila on Sat Jun 21, 2014 6:36 pm

I would like to locate a stock 4-barrel air cleaner that would fit for my '74 Malibu. Any ideas ?
Most people probably don't use one on a modified engine. I would like one for taking pics of the engine, for insurance purposes.

Ive seen guys use a stock air cleaner with a good element and just drill large holes in the bottom. Looks stock but performs.

Maybe look for a '84 or older camaro, (or any v8 g body for that matter) in the junkyard. 
How about something like this?...

I'm thinking I want a stock type. I was looking through some parts I have stored, and found one. It needs to be bead blasted and painted, so the search can end !
But thanks for the responses. When searching for one item in my stuff, I usually come across something else I have been looking for  Very Happy

Mine didn't come with the OE one, I figured you would want a OE hi/po one instead of a single snorkel stocker.

What carb are you running?  You have a Caddy Big Block in there, no?  Is there room for intake ducts?  

You can prob run a dial snorkel type for big blocks.  I'd check e-bay for Buick, Olds, Chevy and Cadillac BB units from maybe 66-78 as a start.

The caddy big block is in the el Camino. He asked about the '74 Malibu. Very Happy

Those would work good, but I want a stock looking one.  The insurance company I'm looking into may not like a modified engine car.


Of course the fuel divider & hoses may be a problem also, But I could use a camera angle to avoid those.

The Caddy engine has the stock Caddy air cleaner, with a stock duct that I ran to a scoop I made, in the core support.
