1970 Snorkel Delete Plate

Hi there. Does anyone know where I can source out a snorkel delete plate for my 1970 Mach 1 shaker? I've been searching online and through Ebay and can only find one if I buy an entire shaker kit ---- but I think $450 is a little too much just for the plate! Thanks guys.

It's the plate that plugs where the snorkel would be if you want to plug it up and not run a snorkel on a shaker. I think it's called a snorkel delete plate. I see the part on CJ Pony parts when you buy the entire shaker kit, but they don't sell just the plate alone. Thanks.

that thing bottom left



why do you wanna block it off? I doubt theres any performance benefit. I have a cheap repro tub so it didn't even have the hole to begin with --

Yup, that thing on the bottom left. Here's a picture of what I've got. The snorkel was removed because it hits the brace I've got going across the engine bay. You can see the hole where the snorkel would normally go. I just want to cover that up so I'm only receiving my clean air from the shaker scoop (plus it would finish that off better).

So you have a non functioning shaker right? Not criticizing just trying to understand. My 70 Torino M code had original factory shaker so I'm familiar with how they work,

If I remember right the cheaper fiberglass shakers used those plugs. The shaker was made to be open all the time from the top and a snorkel plug was included. I believe the bases couldn't support the weight of snorkel out there shaking.

It's not too difficult to grab your own, solid or perforated.

This is what I did with mine, but used a solid plate. I think it was an old radio station plate I cut down to size. My shaker was open all the time, did not have anything to close it.

Thanks everyone. I like the look of the perforated one and think I'll need to fab my own. Yes, it's the aftermarket fiberglass shaker so it's a non-functional - always open - shaker but didn't come with the plug. Thanks to everyone.
