    Is there a set up for the 185 Champion engine that has a paper element available? If so where do I find one and how much?
    Carb is 2 1/4 inches.
    Thank you

      What filter do you have now.
      I recently had a customer that had a factory dry filter (not oil bath). The factory filter looked to have a cotton mesh or mohair filter. We removed that and replaced it with a modern paper filter. The filter was nearly a perfect fit. I say nearly because the original housing had a radius on the filter housing where the bottom of the paper element was to sit. The paper filter of course is flat on top and bottom. The stud that secured the top of the filter housing to the housing had to be lengthed. I have the replacement filter # @ home, if you'll email me I'll sent you the # (provided I can find it .
