Shaker sits too far forward
« on: September 16, 2022, 06:42:30 AM »
Hi all  its been a long time... Well long story short I bought a new hood from ebay around 2010 for my 79 trans am.  I have a 403 and a fitech installed.  The shaker is a 403 shaker and base, the shake sits too far forward by about an inch towards the front of the car.  I had to modify an old shaker and move it off its base farther toward the back to get it to sit correctly.  Almost looks like to me I may have to change the base or the air cleaner itself any ideas?

You can check into the Butler Drop Base.  Or one from Pro-touring.
