Quality piece.

January 29, 2015
I was blown away with the quality of this air cleaner. The fit and finish were way above what I expected. The seam between the top and bottom halves was perfect. Can't wait to get it powder coated to match my other pieces on my 32 RPU.. Will send you a photo when finished.

This air cleaner uses a typical 14" diameter air filter. I don't know of anything available that will adapt this to fit three two barrels but you may be able to custom make something to adapt it to your carbs.

Different dropped bases may work with the Retro Cad/Olds air cleaner. The rear of the air cleaner housing is notched for HEI clearance and lowering the assembly may or may not clear the distributor.

Appears that the top and sides are a single piece? The pictures indicate that the base plate is placed on the carb, then the air filter is installed and the top unit is installed as a single unit. Is this the case?

Yes you are correct. The bottom is just a base for the filter to sit on and everything that you actually see is the top portion of the air cleaner housing.

Speedways Retro Cadilac/Oldsmobile air cleaner is for the standard four barrel Holley, Edelbrock, Barry Grant, etc. carburetors with a 5 1/8” neck and will not work on the 10-10077 carburetor without the appropriate adapter to go from your carburetor neck size to the 5 1/8” neck size on the air cleaner.

Part number 92511925 This air cleaner is designed for the standard 4 barrel carburetor having the 5 1/8” neck. You would need an adapter such as part number 91011360 to reduce down to the common Rochester 3” neck.

Yes this fits all 4 barrel carburetors that have a 5 1/8" neck size. It will fit your Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor just fine.
