1964 Greenbrier 4 Carb Setup *Question*
Posted by: SLOW1 ()
Date: March 29, 2021 09:54AM

I bought a 1964 Greenbrier van a couple of years ago. It has a 4 carb setup. The previous owner put carb cleaners on it that don't fit. Can anyone tell me what type of filters would work best on this engine? I have attached a few photos.

Low-profile "Cal Custom" style air cleaners will work if the engine cover is raised two or three inches.

Other than than, you can make or have-made extensions for stock "teardrop" air cleaners. Plans are in the Corsa Tech guide.

Here's a set on my Rampside:

Does anyone have an example of a Four Carb setup on a Greenbrier?

Craig replies: Rampside and Greenbrier are IDENTICAL in the engine compartment. The air cleaner system shown above was actually in my Greenbrier before it was in my Rampside.

Here's a partially installed shot of the same parts when they were in my Greenbrier: (See my first post for how they look when fully installed.

I like those high volume air cleaner canisters.

Slow, You are aware that F.C.'s ( Rampside, Greenbriar, etc.) did not come from the factory with four carbs, right?

The plans for the low profile 140 HP air cleaners for the FC are in the September 1993 CORSA Communique.
