Looking for Manifold bracket(thing of a bob)?

I have a friend looking for a (thing of a bob). Well he told me the name of it is a WARM HEATER STOVE MOUNT. It is for a 1979 CJ5 258 with stock manifolds. The item he's looking for is a type of bracket that clamps or bolts on the exhaust manifold which then connects to a hose that then leads to the carb to provide warm air to it, he has a hose just not the mounting bracket....

He's look locally here and cant find one, Does anyone here have one and Can anyone here help with one. If so let me know......

Thanks in advance,
Rich

Does no one in Jeep land have one or know where to get one. My fellow Jeeper tried calling different Jeep yards and they were no help.

I'm no expert on carbs or anything, but why would you need warm air to the carb? I thought you wanted cooler air because it was more condensed and you receive more oxygen which means better fuel efficiency. Is that correct or have I misunderstood something?

I've seen universal ones at Car Quest, Checker, NAPA etc. They just clamp around the manifold or a tube style header with a hose clamp or two. Check them out![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

gigolo: You are right in that a carb needs "cool" air to make more power, but up in these parts (frozen tundra of the upper midwest) -20 degrees won't even allow a carb'ed engine to run while warming up. There is a vaccum controlled "flapper" valve in the snorkle of most air cleaner housings that is activated by a thermal switch. Once the engine comes up to temp, this flapper closes off the hot air from the manifold and allows cooler air to enter from the air filter's snorkle.
