I finally got some time to wrench on the TR8 again.
When I installed the new cam and lifters, I also
switched from an Offy Dual Port intake to an Edelbrock
Performer. Carb is a 500 CFM Edelbrock AFB. With the
taller Edelbrock intake, neither my oval street rod
air filter nor triangular foam Edelbrock Pro Flow
filter will fit under the hood. I tried a drop base
14" diameter round air cleaner with a 2 1/4" element
which looks like it has a chance of clearing but the
base is designed for Holley carb and doesn't clear the
fuel hose. I might be able to use a banjo fitting but
I have a manual choke and it looks like the cable might
be in the way of the fitting.
What's everyone doing for an air filter with Edelbrock
intake and AFB carb.
