  • Air Cleaner size for period correct WCFB carburetors... 3 1/4"???

    Just wondering if 3 1/4" is correct or is that for the modern air cleaners...

    The Carter WCFB 4 Brl. Air Cleaner opening flange is 4 1/8" and also Original AFB's.

    The Popular Aftermarket Air Cleaners and Edelbrock AFB Clones are 5 1/8".
    There are 4 1/8" to 5 1/8" Adapters available.

        I found a machined adapter a couple of years back. It’s worked out very well for me.

        Edit: my original supplier is gone, but I found this after a Google search:
