Inline six spark arrestor

Anyone know if the spark arrestor is available somewhere. I cant seem to locate it in any parts houses. See pic below. I am trying to build the line that goes from the air cleaner spacer to the side of the valve cover. I think its called a spark arrestor????

Re: Inline six spark arrestor

I think that you are looking for crankcase ventilation (PCV) early style....Ruggles

Maybe? Someone else called it a spark arrestor in another thread. I do have the standard PCV valve in the back of the air cleaner. Than I have just a rubber hose that goes from the front side of the vale cover to the Air cleaner spacer. Now Im switching to a Offset air cleaner like the one above and all that I see have that line with what looks like a fat PCV valve inline. ??

Re: Inline six spark arrestor

Heres a better picture I found from another thread. Now Ive seen it been called a flame supressor, Breather filter etc.... Anyway Ill need to source as much of this setup as I can to run my Offset filter.

Re: Inline six spark arrestor

Theoffset air cleaners and parts are tough to find. I saw a complete offset air cleaner set up on the parts board pretty cheap. I think it had this piece. A few years back I bought an offset air cleaner for $50 but it was missing the spacer and this breather. I got lucky and found one on the parts board for $15.

Re: Inline six spark arrestor

i have these 2. The smaller mouth one is from a 68-72 v8 and the larger mouth is from a 67 v8 and 67 and up line 6 with optional closed pos vent. I believe the larger one is what you are looking for. I may have the rubber hoses as well but would have to look. I dont have the cleaner, spacer or the metal tube that comes out of the valve cover. Removed this so long ago that i have no idea what happened to them. Rod.

I think your'e right. What ever you can find let me know. Hoses would be good too. I can source the clamps. Ill piece this thing together slowly as I need too.

Re: Inline six spark arrestor

I just came across one of these if you still need one. From a 67 Chevy that had the oil bath air cleaner. All original with GM markings on hose.
