In Reply to: Watch out, It may hit the hood too....... posted by Dahveed on March 11, 2000 at 12:07:57:
yes, Dave...I remember having this conversation at the bayarea02 event out at Port Costa, and my 32/36 equipped red '76. I used a dremel tool to open up the bottom of the stock filter so it would sit directly on top of the carb...and even then, it still barely touches the hood (enough to take the paint off). The reason I run the stock filter is because the '76 won't pass the visual smog test in CA with any of these aftermarket filters. I guess it won't pass with the 38/38 weber and ITG filter that i'm installing this week...but hey, I got two years to enjoy it!
