    PaulH,

    Thankyou for the links. As you mention - a bit pricey, and I will consider all offerings.

    Cheers,

    The new filters are from Moss Motors , felt with wire mesh. Since I have owned the car the origional filters have never been changed, Shame on me ,

    The new ones are as per the picture above.

    It is unique logic, and you may be lucky and find your change of air filters will, by coincidence, solve the rich running. But without wishing to sound rude, yes, it does sound daft.
    To some extent, I find the trickiest part of adjusting the mixture of the carbs is removing and replacing the air filters! I have always found that so fiddly that I have changed the way they are atta...

    Below is from an early Driver's Handbook (2nd Edition), replacement filter elements and pads sets seem to be still available.

    Gordon,
    a photo of the filters (fitted) might help, as original can have different meanings.

    What work or servicing/maintenance have you done on the air filters since the carbs were rebuilt?

    Anything unusual about their fitting?

  • Gordon Harrison01 July 2022

    My 57 Mga coupe currently is running rich. I could adjust the mixture but I have decided to replace the air filters. I am doing this ,because they are the " origional " ones that came with the car when I bought it back 52 years ago.

    My thought is the new oiled air filters will automatically, let the engine run leaner and there will be no carb adjustment needed. The origional carbs were pr...

    Another good reason to use your classic as a daily driver.

    Hi Tyson

    As a fellow boat owner I will ask the basic question. Have you checked the earthing on the harness as well as the power leads. Then if that seems OK have you checked the radio on the bench with a 12v power supply or battery. My guess would be that the simple harness change has changed something.

  • Tysen McCarthy01 July 2022

    This is silly and frustrating.

    I am replacing an AM/FM radio in my cabin of my boat, but since it is a 12 volt system and a car radio I thought I'd ask this knowledgeable group.

    It needed a very simple harness change out, which I did.

    I confirmed that there is voltage to both the red wire and the yellow wire in the power harness. However, the radio will not turn on.
