318 in a 89'

So I bought a Comanche that has a 318 in it. Motor is from a 73 duster. Carb is a 2 barrel holley. The air cleaner inlet is 2 5/8". My problem is that the air cleaner bolt is hitting the hood, and smashing the little 2x8 air cleaner which isn't big enough anyway.

I'd rather not chop the hood up, but I can't find another option for a remote mount air cleaner or a shorter air cleaner, the carb is just rebuilt and nice cant mess with that.

Any Ideas?

1" spacers on the hood hinges.

Hmmm, didn't think it would be that high.

The factory passenger car housings usually were designed to clear a lower, passenger car (duh, right?) hood, might be just enough. That engine must be mounted high to clear the axle?
I have a LT1 efi Z28 motor in my xj and have good clearance ...

If it runs on gasoline count me in.

Difference in mounting points on blocks. And different motor mounts too.

Try a stock intake off of an 5.2 grand cherokee. It has an airhat on the tb/carb that uses a tube to a remote mounted airbox.
