Need post showing modified low profile air cleaner for 140HP
Posted by: 66vairman ()

Somebody posted a picture of a modified low profile air cleaner to fit TWO carburetors on each side of a 140HP. I told someone about it, now I can't find the post (yes I searched). Wasn't that long ago.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Are you talking about the '61-3 normal style? Normally for use in an FC / 140 hp combo?

dual air cleaners

Thanks Matt

That setup will work well for an FC owner who wants install an A/C compressor.

I found several of the low profile air cleaners and a cross over at the SCC parts meet just as they were going into into the scarp heap!

I've seen quite a few FC's with that type of air filter. Done correctly, it looks completely factory.

There are instructions in the CORSA tech guide, volume 1 I believe.

I don't think they use a late model crossover, and give the same result.

Maybe originally created by Fran Schmitt?

From what I recall of the "plans", this method was much simpler.

The original mod requires much more fabrication. It required cutting up a EM air cleaner top and welding a much longer seam on top and bottom.
I thought of the LM crossover because the profiles mated up well.
