Got my cleaner from "imafishingfred" today...very nice, and at a very good deal. Thank you. He is sending the valve cover mounting stuff as well. Still need the rubber dome shaped thing that goes under the housing...anyone?

I have not heard back from Double D Fab about the carb adaptor, yet, and that is all I need to get it installed. Hopefully I'll hear something this week.

Actually kind of pumped about getting this on the Jeep.

That's the same part I'm still needing too. I'm not even sure what to call it, I guess "rubber dome shaped thing" works as good as anything

I'll look again this weekend. I may have the dome shaped rubber somewhere in my shop. I just don't recall ever seeing that part.

Wouldn't something else work for the rubber washer?

My '81 had the non-brake booster style of air-cleaner that stacked directly over the carb, so I'm not familiar with the domed rubber piece. But it looks like something that could be "redneck engineered".

I just used a split rubber hose until a fellow JF member here sent me the proper one.

It's just a flat teflon(?) rubber(?) washer as far as I can tell.

There are actually two pieces under the air cleaner when it sits on top of the bracket. Right on top of the bracket is a plastic disc and then the rubber/foam disc on top of that. And finally the air cleaner sits on top of those.

I'll take a picture later on with measurements of both pieces and post them here.

That explains why my air cleaner never feels level or seems to fit right. I only have the plastic disc. No foam/rubber disc. Your pics will help. Cheers.

Keith,

Have you had a chance to snap those pictures with the measurements??

Here are the two pieces. The one on the left is the plastic dome shaped piece that sit directly on top of the valve cover bracket. Then the 1/4" thick foam/rubber piece sits on top of that. In the second picture, you can see how the foam/rubber piece has compressed down over the last 30 years of use.

Heard back from Dan at DD Fab, told me he would make the MC2100 / 2150 adaptors to mate the offset cleaner for $45.00 plus shipping.

Thought I'd pass this along, as it seems a few of us here, and on a couple of other threads, may be interested.

I'm gonna get one.

Interesting. I'm fairly certain I don't have that rubber piece. Although there's a good chance it's compressed somewhere where I wouldn't notice it.

I took a foam rubber ball like they use for hand grip exercise, cut it about 1/3 and drilled a hole for the stud...in a mock up, it seems to work.
