Can anyone confirm how deep a filter you can get away with on a 28/36 under the V4 bonnet? I'm probably going to use the 2bbl inlet manifold but may go with the SAH adaptor for ease/speed, at least in the ideally looking for both measurements!

Hi There.
I am in the middle of the same process and am looking for the clearance height. I have an option on a Racepro chrome filter which comes in 45, 65 & 85mm. Which one fits???

More pics in my project thread: Please note the base slopes towards the front to create enough room for the top to clear the bonnet.

That won't work so easily on a DCD because of its height, the DGV in the photo is a fair bit lower. I recently started modifying a Solex 32TDID filter housing to make it fit on a DCD, the carb needs to be recessed into the bottom part to make the filter clear the bonnet. It's a bit hard to see in the pic, but under the round plate is a ring that raises it by about 15mm, the round tin is to create extra room for the housing to clear the carb's fuel filter cap:

I'll post a better pic when done.

Or you could try something similar to this?..

Hi Al ,
I put a webcon one on , generic foam lynx Ramflow type.
Fitted no problem on a SAH adaptor .
Webcon still advertising them.
Quite a bit cheaper has given me no issues .
Best of luck
