Tiger type air filter

Post by Rallye Imp » Tue Jan 16, 2018 8:17 am

I am just completing an Imp for Targa tarmac rallying and need a couple of filter element for Tiger type air cleaner for twin 40’s. It was originally supplied to me by Special tuning in the late 70s
On the cover it says AC element A141125
It looks the same as the one featured in December 17 Impressions on the rally engine you built on page 34

Does anyone know a supplier. I am in Perth Australia

Thanks

Andy

The K&N part number is E-2859. It is still listed and widely available...certainly in the UK.

I used one recently and can vouch for correct fit.
Slainte, Alan

Mine is Oval 16-1/4" X 8-3/4" outside. The one you recommend is round, I take it will fit in the oval box?

Should flex to the right shape as you put it into the housing.

Contact K&N if you need to check, as Peter says should flex to fit.
