Re: [T3] SP-2 air cleaner

That looks like a regular late-model dual carb air cleaner. I've seen them
on 72-73 model cars.

They changed the air cooler periodically. It splits approx 64-67, 68-71 and
72-73 (don't quote me on this). The difference is the way that warm and cold
air was fed into them.

I think Mark Seaton sent a question yesterday asking whether anyone knows
how to adjust it's thermostatically controlled flap. I thought of sending in
a reply asking whether anyone on the list had actually ever seen one of
these before, but thought better of it in the end.
