RE: [Chrysler300] 1964 300K

The 1964 Parts Catalog lists only one air cleaner for the single-carb 1964 300K:  2463951 for VC2-300K, use w/Air Cleaner to Breather Pipe Hose.  It lists an air cleaner for (single 4-bbl 413’s) NY’s & Imps that is silenced:  2402672.  The 1965 Parts Catalog is similarly vague on the 413-equipped Chrysler 300.


The 1964 Service Manual states that the Closed Crankcase Ventilation valve is connected to the throttle body.


I don’t have anything to go by and am curious.  Was there another supply-air hose running from inside the filter element on the air cleaner to the oil filler/crankcase breather cap so that only filtered air would enter the crankcase?


The 1964 Parts Catalog did show one special air cleaner California-only for Plymouths and Dodges with a 426 CID engine (not designated as a hemi)—and, also, designates two different RHS air cleaners for ram-engined 300K’s—with & without a connection to a Breather Pipe Hose.


So, for FirePower 360 HP 413’s--do we have silenced and unsilenced, CA and non-CA, same as NY & Imp?  Pix of documented OEM air cleaners on FirePower 360 engines in and outside of CA would be helpful.

1961 was the first year for smog equipment on California sold cars.  The 1961 Chrysler service manual shows the ram intake PCV valve.

Could it be that the smog regulations in CA started in 1965?  With no snorkel, there would be no hose connection to a PCV valve.  Would be interested in hearing from people in CA who would know when the regulations changed.

No snorkels on a 64 K. Perfectly round



That's the way the air cleaner housing is on the 300L.  The L came with an unsilenced air cleaner not much bigger in diameter than the filter cartridge itself.  The snorkel, if you want to call it that, is about a half inch in diameter and one inch long with a black plastic or rubber cap.  Bought my L new in NJ and it had no hose from the snorkel to a PCV valve.


Those with a 300K will have to chime in on this one.

300K should have no snorkel

Unless sold in CA, Then I believe it may have a nipple for the hose going to the carb??

My single 413 4 barrel air cleaner has one snorkel, I do not know if that's correct on the car?

Thanks Harry
