    Default DS Air filter

    Hi All,
    The end of my air filter(cream one) is hitting against the top radiator hose(23 manual carb). Am I missing some spacers or should I have the black filter, is it shorter?

    I seem to recall adding spacers/washers to both studs under the bracket in an attempt to gain more clearance from the top hose. Wasn't that successful, then I realised raising the forward mount above the rear mount will amplify the result.

    Hi,
    Yes a thick washer under the front mount solved the problem. I feel a little stupid that it was so easy to solve. I was envisaging collapsed engine mounts or similar!!

    Cheers,
