What ram air is this one?
#1
On my last parts gathering trip I found a guy that had 4 ram air systems. Three were the off center ones for the 351, he had just sold the last one he wanted to sell. He has this one that he could not identify and I cannot either. He says it will not fit a 429 but it is centered like a 429 is. You can see the number stamped on the flange, 4 inside a box then 71048, see pictures.
Thanks and any info would be appreciated.

I just compared that base to mine and it is definitely different, albeit there are some areas the same. The tabs where the base goes over the Rochester carb are different and would automatically make for a difficult fit. The ram air rubber flange is wider on your piece as well as then what would be used for the '71 429cj cars. Would this fit on a scj with holley carb, can't be sure about that, but I don't think so? It is probably for another Ford model with ram air.

I have a ram air cleaner base that I nor anyone else so far has been been able to identify. It looks very much like a unit for a 351C but the oil breather hole is on the drivers side at 3 o'clock and not on the passenger side near the hole for the charcoal canister tube. So I'm thinking it's from a 1972-73 Mercury Montego which had a ram air plenum much like the 71-73 mustangs, but I have not been able to confirm it one way or another. The only marking is a small Ford oval on the lip. Any recognize this one?

Would you believe that I used to own a company that made prototypes for ford and that both of those air cleaners are rejected prototypes that were stolen from us? Please return them ASAP and there won't be any trouble. Wink

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Jeff, I appreciate the humor, and I'd believe it as I have read about things like that happening before. But seriously is there any truth in the prototype part of your comment, because I can't find another one like anywhere.

rackerm,

I looked in my Ford Master Parts Catalog and could not find the number. Interesting enough, according to the MPC, it references "R" as Rotunda. There is no reference for the 4 character, "F".

If there is, it is pure coincidence.

I examined my master parts catalogs for both Ford and Lincoln/Mercury, and the basic 9626 service parts all have either a Y or a Z for the forth letter. However, these are service parts, not the original part number. If one looks at the air cleaner itself (9600), the basic part lettering is all over the place, yet the service replacement parts all end in a Y (Mercury) or Z (Ford) as well.

I can't read the picture that well, but it looks like B2RF, which puts it as a 1952 part. If it is D2XX, then it is a 72 part.

RF translates as Ford of Europe, General Parts/Electrical and Electronics Division.

Midlife,

The Snorkel number is: D2RF-9A626. Besides a small ford oval stamped in to the lip there are no other markings. The snorkel end is straight for stapling the flex tube to it. That would make the snorkel either 72 or 73.

Thanks,
Rich
