suggestions?

The Great Pumpkin has a stock

1970 1.7 (made in Dec 1969)

We want to ditch the oil bath air filter for something that is much less restrictive and isn't such a mess.

Please offer good suggestions....

Thanks in advance.

you can use the stock filter from a later 1.7L with the paper element. however, the oilbath is actually by far the best filter if kept in good working order.

just don't step on it while it's out of the car.

ask me how i know!

I made this one myself and it works pretty good. The rubber piece is a 2.5-3.5" adaptor that I drilled and popped in the OEM steel nipple from the OEM elbow, the fitting to the throttle body is a female 2.5" 45 deg ABS elbow, and the filter is BIG and LOUD. You'd be surprised how well the OEM filter muffles intake noise! I ran my 1.7 OEM filter without oil for a year, just the little oil from the overflow tube spatter, and that worked fine like Andy says.

This photo shows how the filter extends all the way to side grill, where the air is usually colder.
