Das Snorkel

We pimped out this 1962 Mercedes Unimog with a custom snorkel. Should this Mog wade the Truckee River and an engine snorkel is required, the driver is now fitted with his own snorkel to compliment ear muffs for loud road noise and gas mask for those questionable situations…

This Snorkel is made from mandrel bent 3″ tube and 16 gauge sheet. The top hat is internally baffled to deflect rain from entering the snorkel through the dimpled inlet holes. A drain hole was drilled near the bottom in effort to reduce the water directly injected into the factory oil-bath filtration device. The bottom mounting flange is .125″ plate. Also down at the cowl, the factory louvers are retained on the Mog sheet metal. A cork gasket was cut to resemble a vintage look. Stainless fasteners used throughout.
