New detailing photo Autolite Alternator

I got points taken off at the Autorama show for my crusty original Autolite alternator. New one came in today and on it went.

For the 390 owners see the bend in the snorkel (near the base) towards the front of the car? The correct ones slants towards the rear of the car. Found a (expensive) NOS one on Ebay, should be here in a few days and on it will go.

I think that's the "S"-tube. The snorkle mounts to the aircleaner.

Scott;
Your right, I'm half asleep. Will have to go look at my snorkle and see what I've got. Too many things going on at one time. Trying to order parts for the motor and trying to answer stuff on here. Time to go back to sleep. Thanks again.

Jason; Disregard my first post. As Scott pointed out I got the wrong part. Have attached new photo's. These photo's are what mine looks like.

See the part number on this snorkel? This is the exact part number that was on mine before I repainted it. It is from a Cougar See the forward slanting base?

I'm not changing mine. That's what the car came with so I'm leaving it on. Besides, it's got the correct part # on it. They question it, I'll show them the part # then we'll see the debate start.

backward is Mustang, forward is Cougar and supposedly a bunch of early 70's trucks. That's what the FE guys said.

Jason,

You should just buy a 1968 GT500 or GT350. No snorkle issues. Although if you buy a KR, you need a different snorkle than the 390/428's.
