You better snatch this up today as the 6 cylinder version of it is as hard to find as hens teeth!

The purpose of the heat riser (folks also call it a snorkel) is to capture the hot / warm tempered air coming off of the exhaust manifold.
It sends the warm air to the carburetor, (via the air cleaner) to provide for a quicker "warm up" and leaner burning engine (when cold). :wink:
