Again, I’m new to 57’s and chevys. I have sourced a 4bc and air cleaner and will pick up Tuesday. My question is....the Factory Assembly Manual shows the filter, but without the snout. Everyone says the snout should be there. Who is correct? If the snout is correct, then should I even use the assembly manual as a reference?
1957 283c.i., fuel line outside frame, dual exhaust.
Thanks.

Assembly Manual shows a snout on a single 4bc. Link to 4bc air cleaner.

If you are anal about it, the 58 is about the same except the snout is a little longer.

If you put a 58 and a 57 bbl tp lid together side by side if you look close not only is the snouts different in being long the 57 is shorter.
But look at the lines there is a line or bump missing from the 58 lid where as the 57 has all its bumps or lines.
