Just wanted to pick the community brain regarding the insane design of the Volvo Penta
Air Filter which means you have to discard the entire filter unit rather than just changing the air filter element.
Is it possible to source an aftermarket part that would allow you to open up the filter holder and simply change the internal filter element? It seems total madness to me to have to throw away what is a perfectly useable plastic unit.
Alternatively if I were to fabricate a filter box what internal filter would be recommended to use?
is 3 years old with 350hrs on the clock and runs like a dream with about 1.5litres per hour consumption
at cruising revs (~1850rpm) so it is not ultra critical to change the filter but I am still reluctant to have to throw away and replace the entire unit.
