long arms! :)
snip the end wire of the hose to ease slipping over end of filter housing, but you'll then need to hose clamp the end onto the housing and tighten.

Failed on long arms,snipped wire on ends,removed front grill and removed air filter holder,fitted hose on it and clamped up,then re installed everything,front grill was a complete ?????? To put back my old body cannot readily go that low,it must be great to have a lift
