My 69 Series 2 has been upgraded in its past to the triple carb setup. However, I’m not a fan of the stock air filter and have ordered three K&N round /chrome air filters. I realized that I needed to come up with a solution to the breather pipe connection but have been at a loss for how to manage that.
This past weekend I visited with a friend who has built a solution using rubber hoses, two tee fittings, and one elbow fitting, a bunch of jubilee clamps and steel gas line hose to feed into the back of each of the three K&N’s from the breather pipe. While this works and performs the required function, I’d like to make my version be a bit more elegant (and maybe shiny)
I’ve thought about using thin wall 3/4" aluminum tubing, but finding the tee’s and elbows has proved challenging. Is anyone aware of an aftermarket solution to this issue of piping the breather tube to the individual air filters?
Bob - I’m doing the reverse on my E-type - going from individual filters back to the stock setup. It had these filters installed on the dual strombergs, when I received it. I’m not sure what brand the filter housings are, but they came with connection points for the breather pipe. Yours did not, I take it?
@ryaskovic Like a lot of things in these Covid days, the K&N filters are backordered and not here yet. I know that the back plate has an opening for a breather, but I don’t think they come with any hoses or attachment to the existing breather pipe. Unless these is some other method, I will probably hook something up like what you are showing.
that’s my solution. Expensive, but I had no factory air cleaner setup so it would have been the same price to replace that. ITG is well known in the performance market, especially for air cleaners. This air filter looks really nice when installed.
David, that is the right set of needles? The UEs. Anything else to do to the carbs to fit the Mangoletsi Air Filter?
