    Does any one know where I can get a fresh air intake hose that is either original copy or close to the original. I've looked in LMC and JC whitney and the usual part stores all have a generic corregated plastic thing that has wire reinforcment. Any ideas out there??

    I used some dryer duct once for my diesel, it was the bendable aluminum 5" I believe.

    oops

    Yeah, I guess the year and engine would help. It's an original 79 with a 400. I'll try jegs and thanks for the other creative sujjestions fellas.

    I'm looking for one for my 75 with 350 too. I think 1975 was the first year of the fresh air intake. Mine has the wide intake air cleaner and the plastic inlet mounted on the passenger side of the radiator support.

    Did you look at LMC truck? They have two different ones so you need to figure out which you need. Part # 38-4358 and 38-4359
