  • Air Cleaner - Snorkel Extension?

    I have the stock 352 engine with what appears to be the stock air cleaner over the carb. I'm curious about the snorkel end. It's pretty short, and there's a hole in the top center that looks like a spot for a screw to pass through. Do these air cleaners have an extension that's missing in my case? Thanks.

    The same air cleaner is used on the 430 engine. That engine has a snorkel attached to it. Usually there's a wing bolt that goes through the hole.

      This could be what you’re dreaming of...

        Interesting, thanks for the info. So is it standard for the 352 to not have any attachment? I know it doesn't need one to function properly, but I'm a stock guy, and wonder what it came with when it left the factory.

          It was OEM for the 352 engine to NOT have the extension you see in the picture. As it says it was used on the 430 engine.

            Wudro, can I get the title/name of the document (manual/book/etc) which you got the above picture from? I want to use it as a reference in the future.

              It was probably taken from the 1949-59 Ford Master Parts Catalog. Here is another copy.
