I just finished putting the motor in my 69.
I have a rpm air gap intake with a 750 holley and a K&N air cleaner.The air cleaner hits my throttle linkage so I am going to have to put a 1/2" spacer under the air cleaner.My question is will this fit under a stock cowl hood without hitting?

How much room do you have now?You might want to take time and put the hood back on if its not already on.Please remember to trim the breather stud so its not higher than the breather top and poke a dent from the inside out in your hood.Speaking from a long time ago fact (but you never forget)

the problem is the front cap is off the car and I was just curious if everything would clear when the hood and fenders were installed.I thought someone out there has the same setup and if they would respond and let me know then I would feel a lot better!!

I have a Smokey Yunick crossram with a 1" spacer and 780 with a K&N and it clears. Your just to far with the engine to really know huh. Hope it works out for ya. I had to get a drop base with the notch allready in it for the throttle.

Yes it will fit, even a 302 Z28 with a factory highrise used a spacer between the rubber seal flange and the air cleaner base. A Victor Jr. with a one inch spacer below the carb fits without a problem.

I have a 355 with an Edelbrock Performer RPM, with a 1/2 spacer and a 1/4 gasket/heat shield stack, a Holley 780 vacumm secondary carb, and a 4 inch K&N air filter in a 14 inch Moroso base and lid and a Chevy bowtie aircleaner wing nut and still have plenty of room between everything and the hood in a 67 camaro with a factory steel cowl induction hood.

Try your local autoparts store. Edelbrock makes an aftermarket air cleaner that has a 2" drop set up that will take a 4"X 14" that will allow you to eliminate the spacer and give you all the carb clearance you need for about $30.00
