I've long since gotten rid of my factory air cleaner assembly and have been using an open element K&N setup. Thing is that the bottom of the assembly hits a bunch of stuff (vacuum diphragm, choke, distributor), so I have to use an extender/adapter thing to raise it up some. This thing, in turn, interferes with the choke linkage, so I had to gouge away some of the plastic to make it clear. All in all, it's kind of kludgy, although it seems to work okay. Now the plastic adapter thing has cracked, so I'm thinking of starting over again. I'm sure K&N or Edelbrock or someone makes a filter assembly that's not so low and will clear all the stuff, I'm just not sure where to start. Has anyone been down this road and can tell me what works?
