The air cleaner on your truck's engine does more than just filter out dirt and dust. It also helps define the style and character of your truck's engine compartment. The air filter assembly is the first thing most people see when you open your hood-so why not choose one that is best tailored to your truck's design? Speedway Motors' new Nostalgia Spun Aluminum Air Cleaner has a distinctive style that's perfect for a wide range of stock and custom truck applications. Spun from high-quality aluminum, the contoured air cleaner lid has a domed-top, mushroom-shape design similar to popular air cleaners from the '50s. The base fits common 51/8-inch four-barrel carburetor necks and supports a high-flow air filter element. Measuring in at 8 inches in diameter and 33/8 inches tall, the assembly is perfect for all single four-barrel carburetor applications. The top's natural spun-aluminum finish provides a nostalgic, competition-influenced appearance, but can also be polished or painted by the end user for a truly custom look. Wing nut and carburetor stud sold separately.

Strange Engineering introduces a new style, specifically designed for street and/or strip, C-clip eliminator for most 10- and 12-bolt GM car rearends equipped with C-clip style axles. In the past, C-clip eliminators for these applications have been designed for drag racing, which use ball bearings. Ball bearing C-clip kits are fine for drag racing, but are prone to leakage and premature failure when used for prolonged street use. This specially designed C-clip eliminator kit (A1033) utilizes Timken unit (tapered) bearings, which survive severe side-loads and constant use. The Strange A1033 also features two seals per axleshaft, ensuring a completely sealed axle end. Complete axle and C-clip eliminator packages are also available.
