Air Filter Housing Question - '92 Chev K1500

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody! Brand new to the forums so pardon my jumping right into it. I just bought my second GM truck, this time its a '92 Z71 with a TBI'd 350!


I went to go inspect the air filter and I couldn't get the cover off the housing, its very much almost fused on there. The truck was well cared for before I bought it but little was done to the engine except for changing fluids and other basic maintenance. Is there a special trick to open up the housing without taking the entire thing off the throttle body? Or am I better off just scrapping the old one and grabbing a new off Summit Racing or something.

Any help is appreciated! I've tried everything to get the darn thing off :fume:

I'll try that, maybe just going at it with a bit more brute force will do the trick. I updated my picture actually, that red one was just a placeholder but that's my truck there now. This is what the motor looks like currently and then a front shot.
