Wanted, Air box for 3ltr essex

Post by tom931001 »

Hello everyone,
I have series 2 land rover fitted with a 3ltr essex, its got a k&n performance filter fitted at the moment, but I will be taking the vehicle to morocco next year and need a better way of keeping all that Saharan sand out of the engine.
It seems that sourcing and original air box for the essex is impossible, so does anyone on here have or know of a good useable air box for a 3ltr essex?

Many thanks
Tom

Also try parts sources for other cars that used the Essex.
Such as TVR 3000M, Reliant Scimitar, Granada etc

Rather annoyingly, I have the lid but not the rest of it.
