    Only five years ago. To me, that is "recent." I believe that there was some follow up to the original article in later TW's.

    In checking a few pictures it looks like they made quite a few air cleaners. Some show the vent hose fitting facing at a 45 degree angle facing forward to the exit opening. Another is at a straight line fordward. Also the opening square for incoming air is at the bottom angle and another is toward the fender ???? Is there any difference for the r-2 larks both 63 and 64 also the side stud is on one unit at the forward incoming end and another is in the middle of the cleaner ??? Thanks

    I had meant which turning wheels it was in. Also I was bidding on that NOS one on Ebay that says it was for an Avanti but fully covers the air filter maybe for 64 type?

    To make it clear....The LAST photo is of a '63 Avanti (not '64) R2 air cleaner. It is distinguished by the filter element being partly exposed and having no rectangular "snout." In other words, the air enters the air cleaner through the end (the intake end) rather than through a rectangular snout.

    Of course, these things have been swapped around over the years. The Turning Wheels article is the authority on these air cleaners.

    started a topic Engine: R2 Air Cleaner Types

    R2 Air Cleaner Types

    I was wondering if anyone knew the specific types of the R2 air cleaners and what are they for specifically and which mounted setup goes to what. I will link a few pictures with 5 air cleaners I have not on any engines.
