Carb/air filter help on a truck *Now with a picture*

My mom's dad gave her a 1982 Ford F100 to use to get mulch, gravel, etc... We put a battery in it, and are working to get it to pass emmisions. It didnt have an air box/filter on it, so I got an Edelbrock airfilter and adapter kit. Problem is the air filter has a wing nut to attach to a single bolt comming out of the carb, but the little single barrel carb that is on it doesnt have a bolt comming out of the top. It has what looks like 2 threaded holes, one on each side. So I guess what Im asking is how do I go about mounting this on there? Is there an adapter out there?
Thanks,
Chris

BTW it has an unkown size strait 6 in it.

It doesn't have a hole that you could screw a threaded rod into? That is normal on most

Re: Carb/air filter help on a truck

I'm not familiar with that setup, but I guestamate that you would need some sort of hoop that goes from the two side holes and has a stud welded on the tip center to hold the edelbrock top on

I agree. You may even be able to order a clamp on K&N to sit on top of the carb and clamp on. Kinda hard without seeing it though. You don't need that huge of a filter....Hell, my Camaro has about a 8 inch long K&N conical filter on it and it flows enough to knock out 700 hp.

Re: Carb/air filter help on a truck *Now with a picture*

Put a velocity stack on it and paint flames on the sides of the truck and be done with it!

Maybe even consider



Okay, sorry I can't be of more help. Tell the truth, I've never seen anything quite like that arrangement

I could be wrong, but doesn't that truck qualify for antique status and if so, do they still expect it to satisfy today's emission requirements??

In the US it was called a 300ci 4.9L. Although I am not sure why the 302ci was called a 5L and it was only 2ci bigger.

Re: Carb/air filter help on a truck *Now with a picture*

well a 302 ford is actually a 4.99L and a 305 chevy is a 5.01L

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
