    WTB: pair of wing nuts for air cleaner snorkel - 1970 911T

    Looking for the cad plated wing nuts that secure the snorkel onto the main air cleaner body. My car has a metal housing.

    I thought these were black plastic starting in 1970.

    Hmm, I simply assumed cad. When I bought my car it had flat-top air cleaners and since then I sourced the correct airbox and snorkel. This isn't among life's greater problems but if I'm buying might as well get the right ones. Anyone know for sure?

    I'm leaning toward cad. All the pics I can find online (including the 700 mile 1970S) show cad. This original 4/70 911E (same production month as mine) has cad.

    Here's a July 1970 assembly line pic....cad wing nuts. I'm going with cad.

    Metal nuts go with metal air cleaner studs, black plastic with plastic air cleaner studs. The 1972+ MFI stacks take a specific plastic air cleaner and that is when the change to black nuts was. The black wing nuts are only in plastic not in metal. All metal was yellow cad/zinc plated.

    Love that picture you posted.
