The original air cleaner has a carbon flame arrester and holds a 6 inch filter which is going to be very hard to find.
My 84 came with a flame arrestor that was steel mesh, rather than carbon. Like a big Davy lamp.
The original filter element was 5 1/2 inches tall. I kept the base, removed the Davy arrestor, replaced the element with a 3 1/3 tall AC A477C and a top from a pickup to gain a lower and flatter doghouse roof so my dog can sleep out of the way. Manometer checks indicate no restriction from the shorter element. Theoretically, it would clog sooner, but we all change our filters too often, anyway, don't we? Unless we use a filter minder.
So, you might check 454 pickup air filters in junkyards. Some of them used the same base as the P30 with the 3 1/2 element and matching top.
