How does the air flow into it? From the looks of the pic it's like a solid covering? Is there slots in the back towards the windshield?

hannahuffster The drain hose should be higher up, than the floor pan. Like 6 (or so inches if I remember right) from the top of the hood line...

NAVYCHIEF it's a moss killer. home depot has it. i forgot the word moss in my first reply. bleach should also work.

markharmon When I was rebuilding mine I noticed a short metal tube sticking out of the firewall but no hose attached to it? It's on the passenger side just above where the floor pan is attached.

I would say cowl seal under the windshield maybe...

hannahuffster It is a big black tube about a foot long, that attaches to the firewall on the passenger side of the motor. It is held in place by a spring clip. Just remove and flush out with water and reattach. You will be good to go!

I have some water in floorboards after rain. It's coming from firewall then down on trans hump then splits right and left into floorboards. Couple posts have mentioned clogged drain. How do you clean it out?
