I am looking for the correct air cleaner for my 1966 Mark 2 - 2.4 with Solex Carbs. This was originally a British Consulate car.
In Jaguar Saloon Cars by Paul Skilleter, he says " Early and late Mark 2 engine bays - up until May 1960 an oil bath air cleaner was employed, after which the round paper filter was used. In contrast, Nigel Thorley in “Original Jaguar Mk1/ Mk11 maintains " the 2.4 liter continued to use an oil bath air cleaner system, but this was modified with a revised type circular sump and silencer” He later says that the large grey round filter was only used on the 3.4 and 3.8 Mark 2. Additionally, none of the pictures of engine compartments with 2.4 Solex in Saloon data & other books show the large round filter, as shown in the lower picture, but rather the air cleaner in the upper blue car picture. Please let me know what is correct. I appreciate any help,
