Holley carb - Need air filter but clearance issues with brake booster

Previous owner had a Holley carb installed (and from my brief start up, runs well) but it won't clear the brake booster with filter installed. I don't know what he was running for brakes since I bought the Jeep in pieces, but the air filter won't fit.

Holley measures 5" opening for a filter but I'm not finding anything online. What are you guys using for Holley (or Motorcraft 2100 - I think I read similar dimensions) carbs with boosted brakes? I don't have a stock intake available.

Time to get a smaller diameter universal air-filter.
Just tell the parts store you need it for a Ford/Holley.

Do I need to run a vent line into the air cleaner housing? I'm assuming I can use a small standalone filter in place from the valve cover?

Most aftermarket airfilter lowers had a boss stamped into it so you can drill it and plumb your crankcase to the bottom of the air filter.
If your not smog checking I wouldn't worry about it and just get a small filter that plugs into the bung on the valve cover.

Thanks. Picked up a small Spectre last night at Autozone that seems to be doing the trick. I'll have to run a separate filter for engine valve cover.

Mass does have emissions, but testing is out for something this old. There still may be visual, but I'm not as worried.
