Air filter

Sent from my VM670 using AutoGuide.Com Free App.

On a1970 250c. Is this air filter complete? Looks like there is something missing.

If memory serves, pic 4, the large opening, is an air breather between the exhaust manifold and the air cleaner. It allows the engine to warm up quickly on colder days. A flap closes automatically once the engine is warm.

As for the smaller one, I'm not sure...

In pic 3 the rubber boot with a hole in it slides into a vacuum hose that goes into the intake manifold. It is for the valve cover breather.

'71 250C "work in progress"

Thank you. It seems like there are missing parts. You mentioned a hose, when I got the car there was no hose. You say it should connect to the intake manifold. ( right) I will get some hose. Again, Thanks.:thumbup:
