Is your air cleaner correct for the car?

So, I'm posting pictures with approx. measurements.

The only other problem I can think of, is you're running a '75-newer carb.

I find this stuff fascinating. Have you ever sent for PHS or Vintage Vehicle Services to find out how it was equipped? Just wondering if it had the HD air cleaner option.

Anyways, you need a TA vent tube. Can be purchased from The Parts Place via eBay.

just checked my phs . no mention of a h.d air cleaner . i am almost certain that this is the original one , because it was in rough shape what is the difference in the air cleaners
72 was a odd year for these cars
