Hi,newbie here.I'm looking at a 1970 gto ram air,the one that has a manual knob on the dash.
But on driver side the port out on air cleaner that would be fed by warm air input is capped off,
And the port it would connect to is open,no hose connecting these two.
Is this ok?
I appreciate any input,again I'm new with gto"
Thanks,
Bob H

Here it is,
OK, here is what I have, "The RA IV had 2 pre-heaters, one on the left side and one on the right. The RA III had only the 1 pre-heater on the left hand side." I see you have the shroud on the exhaust manifold. A pre-heat tube/duct then went up to what looks like a 90 degree plastic elbow that goes into the hole at the bottom of the base.

Someone must have blocked yours off to keep heat from going into the set-up to keep it cooler - makes sense to me, I'd probably do the same thing.
