Default Cowl induction seal

This is a continuation on the discussion and correct installation of the now "Infamous" upside down and inside out cowl seal started over at "marys" thread Super car photographs. I did not want to further hijack a great thread.
Some of the following will be redundant from what "KevinW" has already mentioned here.

https://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbt...pics/594264/24

Kevin, glad to see this subject bugs you too... [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/sick.gif[/img]

1st off all the GM seals I have had must be turned and forced to the correct position. And #2 if they are not glued down it will be difficult to get them to lay out well.
Black trim cement works well, but do not used it over crappy rattle can paint.



Again, the squared edge goes to the out side facing down, not up... [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/rolleyes.gif[/img]



Now as to training the seal, I pull the top edge of the seal and fold it over the outside edge of the ring. Clamps or extra hands might help. I have also used the black plastic wire harness wrap to hold it in place. Then leave it till you install it on the car.
The last one I did I sandwiched it between two pieces of plywood and screwed it together to add some pressure.
And It helps to keep it in the sun as mentioned.[img]

Mike, I was reading your post. I recently got a cowl induction air cleaner from a 71 402 chevelle. Im not sure if its real. From everything im seeing I think it is but im not sure. Also the seal im not exactly sure about it. If I could send you pics could you help me out with it? You seem to be the subject matter expert. Thanks Also sent a pm.

Looks like the current reproduction air cleaner and rubber seal,based on your photos.
The rubber seal is also inside out &amp; upside down.

If it was real would there be numbers or letters stamped in it?

Yes it's upside down and inside out in those pics.
They ship them turned inside out,but they're meant to be turned around before being installed.
Look here to compare yours to an assembly line original.Specifically the air horn notch &amp; vent tube design,among other things.
https://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbt...342#Post616342

Does your rubber seal have black tape on the inside &amp; the outside?
Also here's a vid on how they should look when properly installed.
