I recently ordered individual ITG air cleaners/filters and air horns from Motorsport Auto for the SU carbs on my '71. This is to replace the stock air cleaner with integral air horns. This is what I ordered: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic17a02e/11-3025 http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic17a03/11-3014 Anyone have experience with these? I have a couple of questions: 1) There is not enough room between the end of the new air horns and the inner fender to fit the air cleaner foam element into place against the backing plate, so it appears that I will have to remove the carburetors from the intake manifold, attach the air cleaner backing plates and air horns to the carburetors, attach the foam element to the backing plates, then reattach the carbs to the manifold. Is that correct? 2) On the factory air cleaner backing plate, there are 2 nipples to which attach hoses from the float bowl fuel overflows so gas does not fall down onto the exhaust manifold/headers. The ITG backing plates have no such nipples. I thought about running hoses to an overflow canister / container attached to the inner fender, but that's not very elegant. Any suggestions from someone who has or is using these air cleaners? Thanks.
Hi Folks, Long time lurker, first time poster. I've searched for this and unfortunately haven't found anything. Does anyone know where I could get the rubber seals (gaskets?) for the stock SU air cleaner? This would be for the early air cleaner (non flap, non heat-riser tube). I am thinking about getting rid of my individual round K&N filters and going back to the stock air cleaner box. Oh, and would anyone happen to have an extra set of bolts for the air cleaner? I'm missing one of the wing-nut/inner bolt pairs. You know, the one that holds the outer shell to the mounting plate and the bolt that goes inside the air cleaner between the outer bolt and the mounting plate. Thanks! -Dan
