Using factory air cleaner with MC2100?

I was able to find some documentation on how to build an adapter to make the MC2100 work with the factory air cleaner and now I can't find it anywhere. Has anyone seen any instructions for this floating around?

What is your factory air cleaner? As long as its not the single barrel air cleaner it should work.

Can't just get one off a Jeep with a 304? They came with the Motorcraft crab.

I made an adapter yesterday for mine. I used a 5" stove pipe cap to make it out of. Cut a 3" hole in the top, a few tack welds, and sealed it up.

If I were trying this I would find a very common air cleaner housing off just about any GM or Ford V8 from the 70s or 80s that had the same 5-1/4" opening. I would cut the bottom out of it and out of the stock 2bbl housing. The weld the bigger opening bottom into the stock CJ housing.

I have the 4.2 with the offset breather. This is my third jeep and never had the pleasure of owning the AMC304. I used a weber with an open element on my last Jeep, but I am trying to maintain a stock appeareance with this one. I have not thought of using stove pipe. That is an excellent idea. I am also considering using exhaust pipe to build something. Thanks for all the ideas.

If the OP had a V8 the factory air cleaner housing is the same as that used on the MC2100. The factory carb on the V8 is the MC2100.
