Francis Barnett Cruiser 89 air filter

Post  Oily2471 on Thu Nov 17, 2016 8:30 pm

Hi all I am trying to get my wonderful 4t engined cruiser back onto the road and I am desperately looking for an air filter assy.
Does anyone have one for sale please or know of one? Thank you Oily

4T air filter

Post  piston 197 on Fri Nov 18, 2016 8:08 am

Very rare and unique to the 4T engined FB Cruiser, this item is not used by any other manufacturer , so it does not come up very often, It is a right angled box with a filter at 90 degrees to the carb outlet.
I do believe there are replicas of the square 4T filter that was used by Enfield on the Turbo twin, and many of the round clip on filters for the back of the S25 carburettor, I think you may be using one of the alternatives while you wait for the proper thing to turn up ?

4T air filter

Post  FB vincent on Fri Nov 18, 2016 9:09 am

I think the problem is that any other air filter will foul the pressed steel main frame section. I have seen a Cruiser 80 conversion with a 4T engine fitted where a chunk has had to be cut out of the main frame to shoe horn a standard Villiers air filter in. Sandy

any other airfilter ?

Any other 2T Villiers air filter maybe, but would be surprised if the 8E or 9E type, (both of which fit the S25 carb, but with shorter clips, as smaller diameter), would foul anything ? or even a K & N ??

4T Air Filter

Hi, Villiers Services sell the square type of air filter to fit the Villiers 4t, whether it fits the Cruiser 89 or not? Mike

Thank you for all of the replies and help. Hopefully one will turn up for me as it is a very nice bike. I will try a shallow pit bike type k&n for now.
Please let me know if one appears Wink

Still looking for the genuine angled 4t air box to complete my 89 Cruiser. The square type doesn't fit Sad

FB Cruiser 89 air filter - 4T engine

Post  FB vincent on Mon Dec 12, 2016 1:26 pm

For info, the clearance between the S25 carburettor air cleaner flange and the pressed steel mainframe is 1 3/4" at the centre line, reducing to 1 1/4" at the top (but standard air cleaners have a diameter or maximum height much greater than the carb intake flange diameter). Sandy
