Re: MC2100 Swap Fuel inlet help needed.
Fuel fitting is on the front. A brass fitting is good is you are going to continue to use the jeep's oem filter with the bypass, probably a good idea. Air cleaner is a bit of a challenge. 9" is probably the max, and then it will still tap the brake booster if the engine rocks. I ran a 9" for a while, then took a plastic margarine tub that fit nicely over the top of the carb, and a 4" pvc fitting from the hardware store, hot glue gunned them together, then fibreglassed it all over, removed the inner tub, and voila, a massive 90 degree adapter for a k & n. I bought the biggest K & N I could find, it was 18" long (in retrospect, having seen what the v8's require, this was ridiculous overkill). The filter sits running across the engine (towards passenger side). That way the choke linkage sits inside the hole to the filter and doesnt' bind. Open element filters sound mean when you open the throttle. Love that sound. Used threaded rod for the longer filter hold down stud.
