As I have seen before, Hebuller seems to have used at least two types of air filter, the T- filter and the Mushroom filter.

Did the early Hebs used the Mushroom and later used the T-filter?

If anyone knows which type of filter I shall use in my #134 Heb it would be great.

you should also be able to use a Cyclon air filter, don't you?

Your car had the mushroom style filter with the off-center hole. To make it sit a little more towards the fan house. That was needed because of the flat hood. The T-shape style with the extended tube to the carb was introduced later.
For the cyclon there wil not be enough space I think.

actually the T is bigger than the Cyclon... But the mushroom should suit better due to the flat hood.

The T on the Heb has an elbow on the bottom that places it further back.

Over the top of the fan housing,no
A cyclone will fit on a Heb,but you won't be able to close the decklid,not a lot of point really.:wink:

Yes!! I have now found a correct air filter for my Heb. It is a Mushrom filter with the offset hole. A Huf VFI june -49 carburator will also be mounted on the 25 hp engine.

Helloooo.
You scored the real thing there...It's like hens teeth you found.
That is a rare item. Only a handfull are made and were replaced by the T-filter.

Congrats on the score.
