In this pic here, http://i1161.photobucket.com/albums/q517/smackzed/DSC00749.jpg Foun don Page 10 of this thread, Where does one acquire that big black thing that looks like a muffler. The cold air intake thingy. Mine is missing that, & as a result, my air filter is sucking up massive amounts of oil, dirt, & grime, right on the hole where that piece should be connected to. I checked ALL the local junk yards, & no one has them

Perhaps an old rag that was placed in the filler tube to take the place of a fuel cap. A buddy of mine had a similar problem with is truck. The rag would cover the pick up tube & cause fuel starvation. Just a suggestion, without reading the entire thread. It's late, & almost bedtime, not enough time for me to read the entire thread tonight.
No rags used. Turned out to be a pretty massive unsolvable air leak. The 2 possible culprits were the lines going into the tank (I could see quite a bit of them and they "looked" fine) or the fuel filter. I never found out the exact source because I junked the truck.

As for the air muffler (the water separator is actually the thing beside the rad I think) I doubt you'd be able to get it anywhere but a wreckers. Well maybe from the turbo boys

IF by chance you do have one, How much would it take to purchase it, & have it shipped to Washington State, zip code 98022?

Ummm, you do realize Turbanator is almost 2 provinces farther east of me...

I'd phone around to the local bone yards but I have to ask, why do you want it? Almost all of us have chucked it cause it's a restriction.

It's a restriction!........................I didn't realize that. I figured it would act like in improvement by forcing the air into the breather. Now that I know it's a restriction, I'm NO longer interested in one of them. I was thinking it would be like an upgraded cold air intake, since I don't have anything on there now.

Here a pic off my mud truck.It has propane injection and if fully snorkeled.

I figured the air horn is 5in plus so why have such a small hole in the side of the air cleaner. That's 6in pipe that's ovaled and welded in place now, ugly but works.
