Airfilter for early style 0320 FAB
I recently changed out my 0320 powered 6's airfilter. Mine is the early type FAB with the lower alclad airfilter retaining plate and the 5 long AN3 retaining bolts. The standard filter from Vans is a K&N #E3260. This filter requires cutting and sealing with goop to fit around the accelerator pump on the MA4SPA carb. Although this setup has not given me any grief in the last 16 years the idea of cutting the filter and sealing it with goop has never really sat very well with me.
A couple of weeks ago I happened across a thread on one of the facebook RV pages where a builder spoke of changing the filter out to a K&N E3322 that would fit around the accelerator pump and float bowl drain and didn't require cutting. I ordered one and set about making the change and just thought I would share some pics for anyone who may be interested.
It did require making a new lower retaining plate(see pics of the old and new) and a small adjustment to the FAB mounting plate with a Dremel to allow a little for the new bump in the filter around the accelerator pump side.
