    Looking for an air filter base for a Carter AFB 4bbl.N one to work with my factory Commando 4bbl carb. I have the Commando air filter top.

    I used just a generic chrome base from the local parts store. I can get you the measurements if you’d like?

    I am guessing you have an older afb with the smaller airhorn. The newer afb can use the generic 5 1/8" base. Good luck finding one for the smaller ones. You might try a early maxwedge repop aircleaner, or have a spacer made to use a generic base.
    A little more info about which car, and which carb, would be helpful.

    Early AFB has a 4 7/8'' air horn. I believe 67 was the last year before they went to 5 1/8'' in 68-up.You may try Edelbrock's web for a adapter then use a cheapie 5 1/8'' base. In the photos I use the top of the early cars. Slants and Commando's were similar but not chrome like the Commando. This was a 6'' in the photo(what I had at the time) a 9'' base works better.

      If you find a 360 2bbl air cleaner from 72 to about 89 you can make your own base out of one as the 360 2 bbl is a 4 7/8'' air horn. Even 383/400 2bbl work too.
      Cut to fit and use a 9'' air filter. No adapter needed.
