But none of the rest of the stock air cleaner parts. Would this be of help to you?


Awesome! That's it, the rest I can probably make work though will have to just find some kind of rubber mount that works to go between that and the air cleaner housing.

That would be nice, once I have the bracket about the only part that I can see that I couldn't fabricate is that dome-shaped rubber bushing that goes in there. Though maybe able to find some kind of rubber piece that would work.

Hahaha, well, I now have too many offers for them and just sent a PayPal payment to one of the guys ($10 for the part with the 3 original screws and $2.50 shipping so not bad) so maybe one of the other guys can hook you up too

Yes, if anyone else has the mount and stuff, I am interested. I have the cleaner inbound, I emailed Double D Fab about the adapter for the MC2150, and ordered the duct to connect to the grille inlet. So I think I have addressed everything to make this work.

Like I said early on, if someone had a pic, I might have it. Well here you go. I have your address and I'll get it out Monday. Same as before, just whatever you feel is a fair price is fine with me.

Once you have the bracket, you can get the correct OEM hardware from website vendors.

Here's the nut that slips into bracket and is able to slide back and forth for aligning the air cleaner lid assembly.


The correct stud, which is 3-1/2" and has 1/4-20 threads, can also be had from McMaster-Carr. Part #90281A092

Two OEM wing nuts to hold it down can be bought here: http://www.amarkamc.com/product.sc?p...&categoryId=43
But I think Ace Hardware stock the same type of wing nut in their stores.


Still working on where to find the dome shaped pad but i have seen it before.

The one pictured that sits on top of the bracket and slides over the threaded stud.

Ok...maybe I'll be a LITTLE bit selfish and make sure I don't need this thing.

Keith or Matt - I'm sure it has been pointed out before and I'm just too stupid to be able to find it (yes, I've searched...but only have access to the forum on my phone right now do to internet problems). Is there a really good reason for me to try and go back to the stock air cleaner setup with a MC2150? Sorry for my ignorance!

Well, the OEM air cleaner will get you fresh cool incoming air and not half baked heated air from the engine compartment.
It will deliver heated air to the carb for faster start ups via the heated duct work coming off the exhaust manifold.
The vacuum motors control the mix of air coming into the air cleaner and only delivers fresh cool air after the carb choke is no longer needed.
When the engine is shut down and parked, the vacuum motors close the system and prevents mice and other unwanted varmints from entering the air cleaner.
Provides clean air the the engine PCV system.

What Keith said. ^^^^

Also, air filters will last about 10 times longer, if you regularly drive on dusty roads, due to the "closed" design.

Thank you, gents.

I guess I will be selfish and keep the bracket. I was going to just donate to a good CJ home, but if it makes that big of difference, I will try to recreate the original system.

...if I had only known what I was doing when I tossed all that stuff in the trash...what a moron...
