Oil bath air filter.

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me identify these two oil bath air filters. The larger one is stamped AC on the lid, approx 9 1/2" across with approx 2 1/4" outlet and the other is an AC type, 8" across with an approx 2 1/8 outlet. This was fitted to my K2 and has had the outlet bent outwards to accommodate the larger bore but is repairable.

Hi,

I have had a few 50s american cars and these are pretty common on that era vehicle.

I think that those ones being marked as ac probably went on anything that had a carb of the right size.

when I needed a replacement, ebay.com(usa) had plenty listed and they were often listed by the sizes - often not vehicle specific.

I know that doesn’t really help you, but it is a pretty common universal part.

cheers, Bob

Hi Bob, Thanks for the comment, yes the larger on does look like it would be at home on a big American unit, the other is the right shape for my K2 just the wrong outlet size. Cheers Tim

I have a spare but it is probably much too big. It is about 2 5/8” bore and over 10” diameter. I think my spare is off a Ford

The overall size sounds too wide for the K2 although the bore size is spot on for the Solex carb fitted to the later ambulances.
