Another thing needed was a smaller air filter as the FORD one was much too large to fit under the bonnet, so I decided that a K&N was a good idea. I went to a nearby dealer who couldn’t find my carb in his reference book, so I took the carb in and the conversation went like this:
Dealer: “What’s this off?”
Me: “A FORD SIERRA.”
Dealer: “You don’t want one of those. It’s an auto choke and a load of crap! Does it work?”
Me: “It did when I took it off AND it’s for an auto car AND it came on the engine AND until it doesn’t work, I’ll keep it thank you very much. Now do you want my money or not?”
Needless to say, he took my money and off I went.
