A picture would really help to tell what your talking about. I'm sure you can it would just take some fab work. Welcome to the forum.

not to hijack the thread and not that this is a bad thing, but it feels like we got alot of new members lately, and it feels like prices for parts are falling too!

I use a chrome air filter cover right on the carb and now i cant fly through deep puddles any more . So if your planning on goin muddin then stick with your tube or stock air cleaner assembly so you dont get water in your intake and bend your rods.

I have been told the chrome air cleaners aren't the best since they just pull in the hot air emitted from the motor. While the setup I did isn't technically a cold air intake until I build a box around the filter, I did get a substantial improvement in vacumn after installing it.

RockAuto have proper replacement hoses with the correct clips on the end for $7.59, I bought one from them about 6 months ago.
With an original aircleaner (83 F250, 351W), I needed the longer of the two available

Look under Fuel/Air, then air intake hose. For some reason I can't link directly to the part

No reason you couldn't. If you cant directly connect them, you could get a 4" long chunk of pipe thats the right diameter so you can clamp the hose on one end and the filter on the other. Pic still shows up for me, it's pretty much what you posted, accordian hose with a filter on the end.

I recently bought a 1983 F-100 with a 300 CI I6. I have the Carter YFA carburator on it, and I believe that's the stock carb. The truck seems to be a farm truck as it is mostly all stock. I was thinking about doing the plenum conversion with a snorkle and a cone filter set up, however, I have a doubt. The original air cleaner has several vacuum hoses coming out of it going to what I believe are sensors. There's also a hose going from the exhaust manifold into the air cleaner component.

If I did do the plenum conversion to try to make it a cold air induction what would I need to do to those vacuum hoses and the exhaust hose?

First, welcome to FTE. Second, this is a 5 year old thread. So, you may not get the right support. However, let's see what we can do.

The idea of a plenum conversion like the one shown below is a poor idea. I say that because the location of the filter is such that it is pulling warm air from under the hood. Not cold air.

On the other hand, the stock air cleaner does just exactly what you want. First, it has a duct to the radiator support and it pulls outside air from in front of the radiator. Second, it has a temp sensor that opens and closes a shutter in the snorkel to pull warm air from the exhaust manifold so the air doesn't get too cold. None of which the one in this picture does.

Thank you for the prompt reply, Gary.
This was the only post I found that related to my question, so I thank you for commenting on it even if it is 5 years old. I figured that I would keep the original set up of the air cleaner, it makes sense what you said and it also seems like it will be less expensive.
There is something that I saw as I took the air cleaner apart. There's a hole on the side wall of the dish next to where the PCV hose that enters the dish and it looks like another component is supposed to go there but I don't know what it is.
I'll include pictures of this in the post.
And thank you for welcoming. It's my first Ford truck and I'm looking forward to working on it.
