    I found this picture of the airbox I want to use on the 2.5 N/A conversion but does anyone know what its called as I need a new filter but I don't know what it is other than mine is from an engine from a taxi in the 80's.
    I haven't turned up anything remotely useful on tinternet except this picture, any ideas where I could get a filter from

    or find a local auto factors and take your old filter in or the filter bowl and see what you can get that fits?

    Have you got a picture of your filter housing? I've got a similar engine and the closest I could find is a Cooper filter

    Hi, yep, didn't look properly - mine is exactly the same and had a Cooper filter - the closest I can see is https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Coopers-...587542&hash=item51fd15dbce:g:pOgAAOSwLgtZjWkp
    Perhaps see if a local factor has one in and take your air filter casing along to check
