VIP Weekly Fun Question for June 8, 2013
SUPERSTARS!

The problem for this week:

Please list the difference(s), other than decals, between the air cleaner assemblies on a 1972 Q-Code (non ram air and non California) and a 1972 F-Code (also non ram air and non California) Mustang.

This exercise will terminate at approximately 7:00PM (CST) on Monday, June 10, 2013.

Good Luck!

The 1972CJ had the actuators which were not on the 1972 302 2V.

The snorkels were also of different shapes on the end.

The 1972CJ had a chrome air cleaner lid

72 q-code has chrome lid, some kind of vac actuator on driver side and an ovalish snorkle with hot air flapper actuator.

72 302 has blue lid, no actuator and a rectangular end snorkle with no flapper actuator.

I believe the q code air cleaner is a larger diameter but can't say for sure.

To repeat the problem:

Please list the difference(s), other than decals, between the air cleaner assemblies on a 1972 Q-Code (non ram air and non California) and a 1972 F-Code (also non ram air and non California) Mustang.

Per the reference, the major difference had to do with the snorkels being different, Specifically,

The 1972CJ had the actuators which were not on the 1972 302 2V.

The snorkels were also of different shapes on the end.

The 1972CJ had a chrome air cleaner lid

Based on the above, 71mach351 has provided the desired response. Congratulations on the "Win."
