Snorkle instructions?

There have been a few posts talking about the number of sites that have instructions on building snorkles. I remember seeing one in the past but searching for it has ended in failure. Anyone out there have links to any instruction pages? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I really don't want to end up stuck in deep water or up the creek without a paddle.

Well there are a number of ways to do it, I used drain pipe (PVC) and with the elbows and fittings from home depot
it cost 17.00 with a few pieces extra. Justin fender has instructions on his site.

Thanks, I don't know of this Justin fender, any chance of a link? On your snorkle, did you just attach it to the air filter housing or somehow move the whole filter up out of harms way?

Re: Snorkle instructions?

Well I had a problem of not enough air into the engine, (Hesitation etc, ) once I increased the volume of air to the engine it stopped and ran great. so Justins design didn't work for me. (I have a lightly modified motor Cam,header
etc.) So I went up in size for the air intake. I reused the stock airbox for now. blocked the stock hole and made a
new one with an aluminum flashing piece for down spouts. I connected that to the fender with a piece of fexi-down
spout connecter and used another flashing piece for the connection through the fender into the drain pipe.
everything is sealed with RTV. It runs the side of the fender (Outside) up until the door hinge and then uses an
elbow to go up about another 2' to two more elbows connected to each other for the intake. I really need to take
a picture of it and post as this discription isn't too good. Works great no problem with lack of air now.

Re: Snorkle instructions?

I used a snorkle and mask when I went to Catalina island and I couldn't believe all the fish i saw. So i definitely suggest a snorkle to anyone.

I have a stainless steel custom snorkel on my zook, as I have a 1.6 16 valve efi I mounted it on the lefthand side. I have included a photo as an attachment,

Thanks dirty dog! The plastic snorkels seem to crack every now and then however the stainless is nearly bullet proof.

In that picture of your snorkel, what did you use for the cap peice? It looks great, did you do the bending yourself? Max
