Haven't found a pic yet....shouldn't it be a duct? like on earlier Buick 455 engines?

As I recall, the Olds V-8s had a "duct" which started with a plastic "end" that went into the air cleaner snorkle, then had black "paper" ducting stapled to it, which then slid onto the plastic "duct" that popped into the core support. I know that was very common on the early '80s Olds 307s in the B/C chassis, but it sounds like it went back earlier in time, too. The picture of the Buick 455 is similar in configuration to the Olds set-up. The core support end of the reinforced paper probably had a releasable clip which was activated to remove or install it to the front "duct". The front item probably also had a crosshatch grillwork of sorts to keep larger debris out of the system.

Just some recollections . . .
