MichaelF posted a topic in Tech TalkHope someone can help. I'm confused. Trying to order the correct K&N air filter my 2006 Westfield Megabird that I bought year before last. It's fitted with the standard Westfield airbox for this engine. I called Westfield who said they no longer sell the filters. They suggested speak to someone like K&N and get them to make up a custom one to fit. I've checked the pattern paper filter that's in the airbox and it's a "Mann" with code stamped on it: C 2860 The Westfield airbox has stamped inside it that the correct replacement filter is a VW part number: 049133843 Simples! So I thought. Bit of googling later and I ordered a K&N filter which seemed to match up to those part numbers. It's K&N part number is: 33-2002 It's arrived and is physically smaller than the Mann filter and it doesn't reach to the edges of the airbox to seal along the groove wheere the two halves of the airbox plastic housing meet. I've contacted the dealers who supplied the K&N filter and they've confirmed that the Mann and VW part numbers do cross reference to the K&N 33-2002 part number so they don't understand why it's smaller than th Mann one and isn't the right fit. Wondering if there is another Megabird owner out there who has worked this out and can help me out. Thanks Michael
I am after advice as to where to locate the Air Temperature Sensor (ATS) as part of my Omex 200 upgrade. I have Weber DCOE 40 carbs with K&N air filters fitted. I had assumed that I would drill a hole in the back plate of the air filter and poke the ATS through. However, now I look at it, there does not appear to be enough room to do this without the ATS and connection fouling on the carb body. The only possible location is at the bottom centre. Just wondering if anyone has modified their K&N air filters and, if so, would mind posting photos of how that was achieved. If its not possible, would I be better off getting a different style of air filter where there is a single backplate for both carb bodies as I am thinking there would be more room between the carbs on that sort of air filter. Another thought was to just mount it separately but somewhere were the temperature it records is going to be as close as possible to the intake temperature. Thanks in advance, Bill
