Hey Oprn. you must be up in the Hardwoods like me( maple syrup Laughing )
good Idea with the diaper but I doubt it 'Flows good? Laughing
on the dusty backroads up here we go with a foam Uni over the k&N 's both with oil ( trans fluid works in a pinch and 409 as the cleaner) Wink
works great, you can pull off the foam and still have a clean gauze filter , clean foam one re-install I do this a cpl time before I need to do the K&N's Wink

No madmike, unfortunately I am not but Box Alders are related and do work although it takes more trees to do the job and the flavor leans a wee bit toward molasses and the color is darker but it is still quite good.

Not really expecting a flow problem but my wide band will tell me pretty quick if there is one.

R2C filters are available. I just ordered a pair from them, call them directly.

OR10600B is the part # for the 3.35" high

OR10604B is the part # for the 6.00" high

"B" indicates "Black Hex" street

FYI you can make your own filter oil for pennies on the dollar...
Buy a bottle of “mineral oil from a local drug store,grocery or walmart etc. and a pint/quart of denatured alcohol from a local hardware/paint store.... mix 2:1 2 parts oil to 1 part denatured and drop a few drops of your preffered food coloring into the mix.... add to a spray bottle and viola... tell store bought to kiss your hiney.... have a beer on me I just save tiu some dough.. k&n fikter oil is literally those ingredients....

I hope for the best, but expect the worst.
Please let me know when they arrive, or if they don't.
I'd like ot order several sets, but I don't want to get burned, nor does anybody.

Mineral oil! I just happen to have 3/4 of a gallon of castor oil that I use for mixing model airplane fuel. That mixes nicely with methonal and is pretty sticky stuff.

Worth a try, thanks!

If the filter needs a filter, well - why not go with a good filter instead?

First photo is a little off topic but Oprn won't complain , It's also a model of a Canadian aircraft .
the other pics are the first attempt at a central panel filter . After making it I found an air filter/HP calculator . A that panel is a bit small only good for 140hp and chokes the engine over 1/2 throttle . mark 2 being made at the moment with twice the size filter .

Nice bird!!! Very Happy

That is an interesting solution to an air cleaner! I assume that you fabbed that on up yourself? That would get the air filters out of harm's way on a buggy for sure!

I am pretty confident that all that dirt was picked up on the 1/2 mile of gravel road between our place and the highway and the air filters are right next to the rear tires. Bad design! Not much of a problem in the cars but these open wheel Buggies are another story altogether.

Sadly the vampire had to go ,to pay for other toys Confused
The hats over the carbs I made a mold for and the centre section was just made from sheet and block balsa carved to shape and skinned in fibreglass , I then just hollowed out the balsa .

I'm mainly going to the trouble on the Ghia to reduce the induction noise (daily driver) , but also want to make one for the Baja bus because of the amount of dust pulled into the engine bay , I want to eventually make an airbox an get the intake from up the top of the vent area and clean air .
A former job was as a mechanic on gas pipeline construction mostly in very remote areas with few sealed roads . most of the vehicles had snorkels fitted to get the air intake up into clean air . the difference in how long the air filters lasted between the vehicles with snorkels and those with the stock air intake is huge .

Just about any paper element is way better at filtration. But you know that too.

interesting Wreck , I did the same for my 1904cc in my squareback. It is fed from the stock side vents and a scoop under the car. My K&N filter element was from a buick V6 application and works well. what I do find is almost no dirt or dust around the carbs anymore compared to the individual filters on the carbs.

I used carved pink styrofoam wrapped with the fiberglass for my forms, they melt out with acetone, easy breezy.

yeah, you may be right.
It is on my list to obtain the...not sure the name.... "air box pipes"? that originally went on these carburetors. I am sure they could be bought for very little money and probably would fit in a bug or a buggy, and that would allow the use of a central filter easily..........but, the R2c filters worked so well........I put it on the back burner.

Nope! As you can see from the picture the lid on the present ones are almost touching front and back now.
