This is the best deal out there on an open element air cleaner. My problem is I run the old style M/T valve covers and the elbo and hose do not line up with the air cleaner.

Couldn't you make it work by rotating the tube and still use the right angle metal tube and rotate it to fit in a longer rubber jumper hose. I don't think that the base fits double pumper Holley, at least not an 850.

A 70 SS that was originally equipped with an open element air cleaner (non cowl induction) used a low rise intake. The breather tube pointed toward the heater box and used a curved hose that connected to the 90 degree fitting installed in the valve cover. Not the one shown in post #10. The straight hose pictured there was used with the 69 and earlier tall intakes.
Yup, the #163 aluminum intake is what is on my one car with the post #10 parts.
