Hello fellow cruisers,
On one of my Volvo Penta MD2030
, the airfilter ruptured.. The flimsy foamy cup, that holds the steel
spring is gone and where I am at this moment (Jamaica) i wont have time for land expeditions to find this piece, so i am back in McGyver mode: what kind of material i can use to fabricate myself a decent enough filter untill i can spend a bundle on the geniune Volvo
part for this flimsy piece. I did run the engine
without the filter, and was surprised by the force of the air that is actualy sucked in, so the material that i will use must be rather resistant. Any friends out there with practical ideas? Thank you so much in advance.
