'67 SS Air Cleaner
« on: January 03, 2013, 07:43:35 PM »
All,

Can anyone tell me definitively whether the SS Air Cleaners had the extension tube passing the alternator?  I thought mine must have been pulled off at some point but I don't see any rivet or weld indicators that one was ever there.

I also just saw another '67 SS engine in which the extension was not on that car either. It seems like there must have been one or they would had a different air cleaner base.

Lastly, where can I find the exact specs on where the 295hp turbo fire decal should go on the air cleaner.  I see the slight indicator on this current lid where it likely went, but I wanted to make sure.

Thanks!
Matt

Thanks!  Looks like that extension is pressed on then.  Also, I do have the two pipes coming off the passenger side, having screens capping them off inside the air cleaner.  Assume those are for smog equipment vice AC as the car didn't have AC and did come with smog.  Will have to find one of those extensions somewhere.

Thanks again!
