  • 4 barrel air cleaner

    Anyone have a dry air cleaner that will fit a 4 barrel carter with the automatic choke? The air cleaner I have will not clear the automatic choke. 259 engine in a 62 Lark. Thanks

    If you have the correct Carter WCFB 4 Brl. and '59-'62 Air Cleaner, it should fit fine, something is not Studebaker or the right year.

    Does it look like this:

        I have this problem too - got a perfectly nice 4bbl cleaner that will not clear the choke on my WCFB.

              Hanging tough for a dry cleaner, may have to modify the one I have. Hate to cut up good parts.

                Did other manufacturers (like AMC) use the same air cleaner housings?

                  About a year ago, someone here posted a great series of photos on how to modify a later 2/4bbl air cleaner to fit the WCFB, which included fabricating a sheet metal extension that was tack-welded to the cleaner, raising it up to clear the choke. I've lost the link and I don't know who made the post (lotta good I am!), but when he was done, the photos looked like a factory part.

                    That would be great, would like to see what was done. Studebaker must have had air cleaners for this application. Someone must have a car with an air cleaner that fits.

                        So if I get this right,it takes about 1" of height to work on a AFB.and twice that to work on a WCFB,as for the fab. ring.

                          To adapt the 2 bbl. air cleaner to the Edelbrock, I used a 2-1/4" high ring. Your needs may vary. To determine the correct ring height, I made some test rings from cardboard, adjusting the height until the air cleaner just cleared the choke. Then I made the metal ring , and installed it as shown in the referenced post.
