I have an embarassing number of JHs.  Two have dell'Ortos with K&N cleaners, most of the rest have Stroms with Wieand/Ramflo cleaners.    But one (bought as a parts car but perhaps salvagable) has a long oval air box in place of the normal cleaners.  It's about 16" long, 5" wide, 4" deep, with a round 3" hole on the upper side.  Based on my SAAB experience, I'm guessing that this is some kind of preheater for running the car in frigid conditions (e.g., my home state of Maine), with some kind of filter inside.  But other than that, I'm lost.  I would probably put Ramflos back on it if and when this one gets fixed but my curiousity is piqued.  Any notions? 

Addendum:  moments ago this thing just popped up on eBay from British Masters (item 140303876105), so obviously this is a stock item for some cars, although I have not been able to find it in my docs.
