    Good day guys. I have an 85 FJ60. I purchased the TLC with a Weber carb. Now I wanna install the Safari Snorkel Kit but this is what's gonna happen.

    As soon as I replace the air filter with the Weber Snorkel Kit I will have no air filter, and the Safari Snorkel Kit does not come with one.

    What can I do in order to get a air filter here. Remember I bouth the truck as shown in the pic.

    These pics show the weber carb as it is installed in my FJ60 and the weber kit

    Thanks

    Howdy! Might have to make up a custom air box. Find a filter that fits in the area ahead of the brake master. Could even go vertical. Bend up some sheet metal to make a box. If you need help with the fab work, check out your local heating and A/C shop. They do this kind of stuff a lot. John

    Thanks John. I'll see. I might even get a sock and put it somewhere between the kit and the snorkel.

    one idea

    Maybe you could run something like this with an air filter on top of it similar to the kind they put on heavy equipment. This is what Bret (the owner posted up.

    "Here is one out of exhaust tubing, went together pretty easy. It's a 40 but the same principle may apply to the 60's."


    The second pict is of a Massey Ferguson 375S. Most of the heavy equipment I've been around has an air filter assembly much like the one on the tractor in the pict

    For more ideas try using the search feature on this site,it can be very helpful.

    If you can score a 62 filter assembly then you can use a 62 application snorkel, and plumb the carb hat to the 62 filter can's filtered air outlet.

    You can get pre-breather like filters for the top of the snorkel but its not really the best protection.

    Good pre-filter for getting out the large chunks, but not really a filter capable of delivering clean air to the engine.

    I loved my Weber, and I loved it even more when I got rid of that cheesy air cleaner. If you take off your air cleaner and drive down the street, you'll find it runs considerably stronger, meaning that your AC isn't big enough. So whatever you do, get a bigger filter.

    Mini-van air box right up in the corner under the wiper motor. I can't remember which mini van (sorry), but the box is about shoe size x 6-8" deep. Then you can get a K&N filter for it and be off and running deep.

    Howdy! I should have thought of that. I have a 98 Chevy Astro and the air box on that should fit OK. John

    I got all my parts from Australia. It took about a month and at most a third the cost of what $or wanted.
