Help with 2v motor install

I recently put a 2v motor into my TC cortina and after getting the engine to sit in i found that there wasnt enough room under the bonnet to fit the air filter on the carby. I currently have the stock 2V carby.
Has anyone had this problem before help please

TC Cortina 6 Cylinder Models had a raised sort of hump in the middle of the bonnet incorporated into its styling lines for bonnet/engine clearance.If yours was once a 4 Cylinder,then your Bonnet is differant than the one you need.If you already have the Correct 6 Cylinder Bonnet,then you could try using a sleeker Air-Cleaner Element or deeper dished Air-Cleaner Base if you wanted to avoid cutting holes in your Bonnet??

Re: Help with 2v motor install

I did this conversion in my TC, and never would again, you have less than an inch clearance under the bunnet, a 250 xflow fits better, but i guess its too late for that now, maybe see how much sump clearance you have, you may be able to lower the engine a little, I had an old ramflow on there that i had to flatten to fit, so it didnt help performance.
