Hey guys what air cleaner should be on my 1966 straight 6 the car didn’t come with one when I bought it.
Is your car a CA car? Look at the DSO on the Warranty Tag. CA had stricter emissions than the other 49 states (or is it the other 56 states?) and the cars sold in CA had the smog pump system that injected air into the exhaust ports. I'm pretty sure it used a different air cleaner. I know that member "josep" has a '66 CA 6 cylinder that has the smog system on it.Hey guys what air cleaner should be on my 1966 straight 6 the car didn’t come with one when I bought it.
What’s the diameter of that?The typical 1966 200 air cleaner was the one with the "snorkle" tube inlet. Only cars with a "closed crankcase" system had the small hose connection. That would be 65 California, and 66 all with Thermactor.

Late 66, and 67, had air cleaners with no snorkle. The air inlet on those was a slot all the way around between the lid and base.

You can also get one that looks like the 289HP air cleaner. Looks good, and less than half the price of the stock version.
