Default Water and shaker hood

Here's what I hope is a silly question? What prevents water entering the hood scoop from filling the lower portion of the shaker assembly (where the air cleaner sits) and entering the carb? I do not have a snorkel assembly and a plate is covering the area where snorkel was.

The way manufacturers get around the problem of the wet is usually through creating
a dead zone where the water will fall out of suspension, then the water is collected
and allowed to drain through a tube out onto the ground. If the filter gets a little wet,
there's no real issue. A little water getting in through the intake is not going to create
an issue. Your engine can ingest and "burn" (used tongue-in-cheek) a little water
without causing an issue.

Some people will install more drain hoses into their Shaker, but there should be at least one
already present.

The 1970-1971 originals shakers had two manually-controlled flaps that could be closed by
a pull-cable mounted under the dash. Newer ones have drain holes, or a drain hole.

Prove it. My uncle has owned nothing but Mustangs. Some had shakers, and
I was shown the flaps, and how they work.

Maybe it was dodge... Hmmmm......

No flap on a shaker that I remember seeing. The NACA hoods on the 71 / 73 had vacuum operated flaps didn't they?
