Mantec used to make one as I had one from them when they were originally running the business out of their garage at home.

The main pipe went down through the wing top then a rubber hose that was looped to enter the air box between the carbs.

Not sure who is doing an equivalent, or alternatively the Southdown version from Terrafirma though can’t confirm if the rubber hose is long enough for where you need to route it.

Good luck

Various types, e.g. a posh one that goes through the wing vent and doesn't require cutting holes in the wing - but will need some bespoke pipework to attach to you air filter housing.

However I'm guessing that the carb V8 doesn't have an air intake in the wing like the Turbo diesels that followed? If so you'll have to do some wing butchering to make an off-the-shelf RAI fit.

Looks same as the one in the Craddocks link but £50 more expensive. JB

Thanks gents - says up to 94? Wonder why not 95 -

Also I have an external cage and says not compatible - sorry left that detail out.
I thought there was one floating around the internet for a V8, 3.5 and carbs with a cage...could be wrong?

If you have a cage, I think you may struggle to get one to fit off the shelf.

I'd probably go to my local exhaust fabricator and get them to mandrel bend a piece of 2 1/5 or 3" pipe with a kink at the bottom to match the bulkhead / windscreen join and add a couple of tabs so that it can be mounted to the cage with P Clips.

Add another hole for it to go through the wing top in front of where the cage likely goes through, bit of flexi tubing at one end to connect to the airbox and a safari style snorkel top from ebay and you likely have something that works as well for sub $100...

It's not a huge job to fit a wing type snorkel if you've got a cage, I did it on my 110 hardtop.
Just need to extend the wing hole a bit and make a blanking plate up.

Southdown also do a V8 version that is compatible with a cage:

You do need to cut a hole in your wing however.

Thanks! This might work as I don't have a hole yet - does the side hole have to be in a specific spot...? Or with the cage I can move a few inches for clearance and still have it tight?
