Re: Alernative to Ryco A61 air filter element
From memory, using the A88 would mean the 2 bolts holding top lid down would need to be left 3mm of thread loose, as they normally bear down all the way "home" and tighten themselves at the end of travel. Not acceptable.
The problem can be solved by adding 3mm Spacer or washers to the 2 hold down bolts threads and all will be well, otherwise the filter will be crushed/distorted with the result that dirty air might "slip past" where sealing is compromised.
