air cleaner
#1
I just got done putting this motor in. It is the c 2v, I added power steering and kept the factory A/C. Well i was quick to find out that my air cleaner will not work due to the hei. I was hoping someone could help me find a way I could find another one that would work that will allow me in the future ( very soon) place the actually ram air system on there.

I am not sure where to start but know it can be done and bet you have the answer.


STANG OUT
here is a pic of the engine. Again the factory air cleaner is simply to big at the base to fit. Not sure what to do.

Ya just use an air cleaner spacer. They are cheap. I have an msd pro billit dist and it was hitting the distributor. I had to space it 1.5 inches. Actually 1.25 woulda worked. I still have clearance to lower it.

I think the spacer may raise the air cleaner to high, let me look and see if i have a spare distributor. Had a couple but do not know if i still have them.will let you know this weekend

Get a Ford duraspark distributor, use it to trigger MSD, use a small cap and points style wires, and you can clear the ram air setup.
