1968-1973 Pontiac 350 400 455 Air Cleaner Breather Tube OEM
OEM 1968-73 Pontiac 350 400 455 Air Cleaner Breather Tube. This is an original 48+ year-old breather tube specific to the 68-73 350 HO/400/455 models that has been media blasted to bare metal, then refinished to a nice finish. It retains the correct curvature required for the Pontiac engines featuring the larger 17 5/8" diameter air cleaners that connects from the valve cover to the air cleaner base. It requires a rubber breather hose adapter connected to the top of the tube that in turn connects to the breather filter at the rear of the air cleaner (not included).
This piece presents very well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!

This assembly is correct for the following models:
1968-73 Pontiac with 350 / 400 /455 engines and the large diameter air cleaner and either oval or dual snorkels:
Trans Am Formula GTO Grand Ville Grand Prix Bonneville Firebird 400 Lemans
This part is for cars equipped with Pontiac 350 / 400 / 455 engines with shaker or closed air cleaner assemblies.
Note: This part differs slightly from the 74-76 air cleaner tubes in the shape of the insert into the valve cover and the angle to which it attaches to the air cleaner base. The later L78 and W72 engines feature a straight pipe with a bend since the orientation of the breather inlet is centered with the valve cover outlet.
The assembly will fit factory original 68-73 OEM valve cover to air cleaner systems. If you have modified your valve covers or air cleaner, or if you are unsure of fitment, please inquire first prior to bidding to ensure fitment is correct. Return requests for non-fitment will not be honored.
