OEM air cleaner size/dimensions for 1983 GMC pickup?

Recommended Posts

We just got back from a trip to Tennessee. While we were there, we looked at my great-grandfather's 1983 GMC Pickup C1500 Wideside pickup (trim level High Sierra).

One thing I noticed right away it that the truck is missing its air cleaner assembly. I'm hoping that nothing detrimental got down inside the engine through that hole.

I'm guessing that, once we get it back to South Carolina and begin working on it, we may need to partially disassemble the top of the engine and clean it out before attempting to start the engine?

On a different note, does anybody have any idea how to find out the dimensions of the OEM air cleaner?

AutoAnything lists several sizes for its cheapest Edelbrock air cleaner: https://www.autoanything.com/air-fil...lo-air-cleaner

Would this one from Summit Racing


fit a 1983 GMC Pickup C1500? This truck has a 5.0 L (305 cu. in.) engine and a 4-barrel carburetor if that helps.
