    I would think it would be preferable to stop the water from
    coming in in the first place.

      I'm glad I read this thread. My 63 didn't come with that hose either, so I'll be making one too. (I thought that was a dumb way to drain off rain - right over the bell housing.)

        Is a 62 duct different than a 63? The pipe I see in the picture looks different from the picture in the 62 parts book. Or am I missing something?

          Yes, the '62 setup is different. Whereas the '63 has a round outlet hole, the '62 has a long, rectangular hole.

          Maybe one of the vendors will have the hoses repopped.

              I am still hoping someone will post a clear picture of the 62 duct and hose. I have looked on this site and googled for pictures of 62 larks, but all the pictures I find are of the outside except one where a six cylinder blocks the view. Anybody got a picture that shows this thing?

                Here's one:



                This is a '62 Lark Dick Steinkamp had last year, I think.

                  Thanks, this helps some. Too bad the air cleaner was in the way. At least I can see the length of the tube. I hope my car looks that good under the hood some day.

                    A 1961-62 should only need a length of straight radiator hose. The housing, or water collector, is probably still in place, and hopefully the adapter, a short metal tube, is still there also.

                      My car has nothing but an opening where the water omes out of the cowl vent. My parts car in the woods did not have any part of the ducting either.

                        The fitting in the cowl is a plastic rectangular funnel with a 90 degree bend, as shown in the white engine compartment picture. The piece pushes into the opening and has an ear that wraps around the lip above it and is held in by two spring clips. Went out and looked at my Larks and here's what I found:

                        60- doesn't have
                        61 & 62 look the same
                        63- different cowl piece

                        There were a few in the NOS inventory I bought from a Stude dealership 2 years ago. I sold one to Jim Turner, and have two more- both of which I need for my 62s...

                        The hose looks to be a garden-variety 1" rubber hose, maybe a foot long. The cowl fitting is the tough part to find.

                        It would be a nice piece to see re-popped, being that most I've seen are shot. The ones that came off my 2 cars I'm working on just crumbled and came off in bits.

                          Like Bams says, they're all pretty much toast after 40 years. Mine was sprayed black when the PO painted the engine compartment [xx(] and I'm afraid to touch it for fear the paint is the only thing holding the rubber together...

                            The drain you are missing was introduced in mid-late '61 production. The factory also sold it as a retro kit for early '61s. You might see if any vendor still has the kit #1339709. I would expect Sasco to be the most likely source.

                              That sounds like the kind of number that might get overlooked by the masses. Like when my brother was disappointed to find that there were no more wiring harnesses for the C cab trucks and then someone put him onto the harnesses for the right hand drive versions. There were plenty of right hand drive harnesses. Almost the same,just with a different part number.

                                But if the lower bellhousing is holding water, it makes sense to allow the water to get out.
                                I know putting the correct hose on will stop 'that' water from getting in, but what about all the 'other' water?[:0]
                                It was just a common sense comment...

                                What about adding a small drain hole in the bottom of the bellhousong?
                                Say...1/4" diameter..
