Horsehair Air filters
« on: September 04, 2020, 08:51:38 AM »
Just read an article on air filters from Bruce Adams (specific to 190SLís) where he mentions that he removes the horsehair filter and puts in a regular K&N filter instead to improve air flow in our engines. I have oil bath filters in both my Fintails which have the horsehair filter. As per the article it seems that they are good at filtering dirt particles but not as good in terms of airflow.

What is everyone using in terms of air filters? Has anyone tried to remove the horsehair filter and gone with a regular one instead and did you notice any improvements?
