The 73? Thanks. It's beat up pretty bad, but that's what fit my budget. I've been gathering replacement parts for it, but haven't done anything with it yet. It has a 351m. More on it here. My 90 has the 351w.

yo JOSE,

Here are some for carb'ed Broncos; But make sure you have a flexible section between cowl or fender or hood an carb filter housing to allow for engine vibes

yo JOSE,
Humvees use a "pre-filter box" @ tp to keep most water out, but is largely used to stop large particles such as birds and body parts from clogging da air filter.
Snorkels should have a bend at top
here is a Hummer type snorkel top

Also, look for Safari snorkels on e bay, etc.
as our buddy Chris B used (he has EFI, but you can adapt to carb air cleaner housing as others have done)

I wanna say i've seen guys use 4" sewer pipe. Cheap and easy. Also don't forget the seal the distributer. I've actually had more issues with that over the intake getting wet. I usually put a ring of silicone around the cap when I change it. Let it dry overnight, then install the new cap. They also make dist. boots. ALso, after hearing alot of opinions about this mod, I think I would make a quick disconnect for daily driving.

If you use the PVC or black sewer pipe option, make sure your connections are going to be good in the engine compartment. I made a cold-air filter for my old 93 Explorer and the heat in the compartment started to warp the flange fitting I adapted. It allowed unfiltered air to get in, so I had to remove it and go back to the original box filter.
I would recommend using metal inside for any connections. I have seen some adapters at the local parts store (Advance Auto I think is where I saw them) for metal intake tubes with various bends. You might want to see if there are any that might be the correct diameter there.

What material did you make it out of?

I used a Black PVC Toilet Flange. Went from 4" pipe inlet to flange I could attach the Cone filter to. In theory it worked well and fit tight, but in reality the material was not up to a standard for the inside of the engine compartment.

i didnt want to make a poentioal problem on my 88s snorkel so i bought a spectre carb plenum part# 9849. alittle RTV and i have a perfect seal on the carb and its perfect size for my PVC pipe. problem is that i did cost quite abit but since i like deep water its worth not to hydrolock another motor and dam does it work


for the air cleaner i modified a MAF air cleaner box from an expedition. i modified it alot but ill one day make a writeup on it. for temporary use on a dry non-rainy day i used the cheap Spectre cold air cleaners and stuck it on the top. however if its rainy nothing stops water from going inside
