Re: Air Filter for MC2100/2150
I heard the old oil bath filters only work at a certain velocity of intake air. They sling the particles out of the air and into the oil as it takes a sharp turn. If your motor is idling, there is insufficient velocity, and it will not work effectively.
I wish someone make a decent 90 degree adapter for the 4 barrel carb air cleaner tops to go to a snorkel or K & N. K&N has one, but it's not for motors over 200 cid and it's fairly expensive cast aluminum. I ended up making my own out of fibreglass mat and resin.
