I'm in the process of swapping out my Air Cleaner for a Vintage Mr. Roadster Polished Dual Scoop. Seems like a easy task but it's not since any Hilborn Style Scoop I've bought and tried will not work with my hood cut out. It appears all the double carb Scoops out there are 20" or 20-1/2" long and that's a tad to long, (it would mean cutting the front and back of my hood, NOT)
Well my persistence paid off and I FINALLY tracked down a vintage Mr Roadster Polished Dual Scoop from the 60's that was never installed (nor was the Scoop or Carb Adt's ever Drilled and Tapped). The condition is not up to my standards for putting it on my Sierra but it's the only thing out there 18-1/2" long and I guess it doesn't look to bad considering it's 50 years old
So far I drilled it, tapped it, and test fitted it and it is going to work
As soon as my new Air Cleaners and 1" Polished Spacers arrive (to raise it a hair) it'll go on for good
Where I'm at as of last night...
