My recently acquired 260 (early '74) doesn't have the standard air cleaner installed. I did get one though, included with a small bunch of parts that came with the car. However, I don't believe the one I have is the perfect fit for the early '74 260 (I've seen some air cleaners with 2 x "pipe things", but mine has 3).
I've attached some pictures - the aqua colour one is mine, with 3 x "pipe things" / the orange one is a comparison picture, with 2 x "pipe things" / plus, for context, 2 pictures of the engine, as it is now.
- Is mine missing the air pump, or was it a non-standard bit of kit at that stage?
- Should I put one on?
- Can I use the aqua one?
- And, if I do put one on (and can use the aqua one), are they all meant to be orange anyway (so, paint the aqua one)?
