    Together, but many have been modified by now to make it easier. Often times made so that they can be brought together at the bottom. As long is it is secure, make it work for you.

    I don't know how close the tolerances were when new, but a lot of them are all over the place 70 yrs. later. I usually build those items from scratch to get a proper fit.

    Think I bought my K&N/Challenger filter from Spruce, but it's been a while. East to clean and re-oil yearly and is less restrictive to airflow. I like mine. Sure it can be bought in several places...
