Seperated this to a different thread from my previous one. I heeded the warnings about the foam type small filter that was on the carb and installed this system that the PO had fabbed up but not installed. I had all the parts. I figure it isn't anyworse than the old one but I'm not sure if this is adequate or not? Give me some thoughts.
1982 CJ-7....not perfect but still alot of fun!
82 Kansas CJ is 75% on his way to a snorkle with that Cadillac air bonnet,
I did the same thing, but I used some tubing and made a snorkel that works REALLY WELL.
The hard part was finding a gasket for the carb so it didn't leak at the bonnet.
Turned out, Holley has gaskets that work great.
Some guys hook hose to that bonnet and run it through the firewall with ONE of those cone filters behind the dash, just inside the fire wall, but it's NOISY, you hear the engine 'Sucking'...
I did a PVC tubing out the fender well behind the front tire, under the battery tray and up the windshield frame and it works OK, but it won't take a wack from a rock or tree very well...
(Ask me how I found that out!)
Now my side 'Nerf' bars/rock sliders protect it somewhat and I do a lot less replacing the plastic pipe!
I've been looking into that square/rectangle PVC they use for fencing since it glues together like any other PVC and it's cheap...
Should take some of the parts out that stick out too far.
Don't know how it's going to work, but I'm going to try it... I'm sure I'm going to screw it up a dozen times before it works.
Looked kind of funky, but one guy used GUTTERING & DOWN SPOUTS for his snorkel, and it worked suprisingly well!
They make nice turns and elbows for downspouts, so it's not that far out in left field...
