Ford Cologen

Hi, I have a VW T25 1985, which, it goes without saying has been stuffed with a beautiful Ford V6 Cologne engine.

I tinkered a bit and used the block from Ford Granada and the head from a UK sierra XR4i and a host of other pieces from a range of other appropriately fitting vehicles ford and non ford, time and finance allowing.

Here she is:

Her name is Rane, named affectionately after my girlfriend Rachel and my Mum Jane.

Now for the point of this thread......

I have a Pierburg Neuss carb on her (picture below - not my engine just the carb) and because of some previous work on the vehicle I now need to fit an aftermarket air filter to her.

My problem is that after searching through hundreds of pictures on the net for the past few weeks I still can't match an appropriate filter to the carb, and unfortunately i dont have a lot of cash to swap and change, so i was hoping somebody could help me by suggesting a filter that will fit and do the engine justice? I was thinking about K&N because it would be easily sourced for me but can't work out which one will fit.

Thanks so much in advance.

Kind regards Ed.

re: Ford Cologen

Contact K&N with details of car that the carb came of and they should be able to identify what kit would be needed .

re: Ford Cologen

That's the problem Logan, I don't actually know what car it is from.

I have tried matching it up with pictures from the net and also read through numerous web pages, but although there are pictures and people talk about them a bit online nobody actually says which car it originally from.

K&N say they want to know:

Which vehicle make and model
Registration & year
Engine number

I don't have any of these, without this information they are refusing to help me.

I have explained which Carb it is but they won't research it without any of the above, pipercross are saying exactly the same thing.

The problem is it is quite old poss 1978 ish, nobody wants to go out of there way for anyone anymore, that's why I have come here for advise.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards Ed.

re: Ford Cologen

Yeah that's not my post, I just used the picture because I didn't have a picture of my carb.

I can't work out if the guy in that post is saying it is or isn't the original carb for the 2.6L Capri, it seems he might be suggesting that it is not the correct carb for the vehicle/engine.

re: Ford Cologen

If you have a rubber fuel line running to the carb can't you just cut and put a inline fuel filter in place?

Could do if it was a fuel filter but it's an air filter that's needed .
