The air cleaner should fit but it wont work on a stock intake and if you use a dual plane intake you have to notch it for the large secondary butterfly to open . If you haven't built a CJ up to really need a much bigger carb it you should not need it .The stock carbs work really well even on modded engines .I think the 3 barrel vacuum secondary can be changed for the smaller stock one .

General Discussion / Re: Another 135 Mustang located

    I was curious what the total is for all the  cars located so I read about all 50 listed on the site and found 12 cars that were not located. There are quite a few that were located, but no story or update plans have been sent to Scott. Some may be in rough shape and too difficult or expensive to restore , but would still be interesting to read about.,
   Understandably you cannot make people send in more info. I ran into Mike Foster at the reunion who was talking to Jacky Jones --and I asked him if he still owned 135 car 51 - he said he did and was still restoring it. I asked him to tell us about it. At the 40th reunion, I ran into Joe Teck who said he had 135 car 14, but have heard nothing more.
  The 135 program was unique and helped set the stage for many other muscle cars to come. 
 


Quite sure the Joe Teck car was sold to a buddy in Auburn Wa and it is now being restored in Ga .

I don't think there is enough difference to make the problems and difficulty of installing headers worth it. I've had several 427 / 428CJ cars with and without headers. I strongly recommend that you not do that based on my experiences.

Here's a related thread:

No drag link, tie rods , etc ?  You could probably set the headers down in the engine bay, start the motor/tranny combo down into position and when they're w/in a few inches of where you need them, set the headers to the heads and drop her the rest of the way down.
Might work...
Those are still on the car, was wishing it would'nt be a PITA to install.I have stock manifolds and a H pipe but was told Headers would make a seat- n -the pants feel if installed and now I have that option since the motor is out.

Mark Carpenter is the one that brought 023 to the 50th Cobra Jet Reunion! He inherited it from his father! Jim Bellinger is the husband of Marks sister. He was racing her car, a 428CJ Torino. Correct info is helpful.

I went back to the published results (attached) to confirm that Mark was driving the 135. Confirmed, story updated.
