Hi. Can anyone help me source a fuel filter for the above. Engine AVU470C.5ZX.1002(i have no pattern) it is bowl type with element. Bowl being 100mm diameter and 65mm long plus the tapper cone. I also need any useful or interesting info as i cant seem to find hardly any info? Can you get any head light panels as there rot as a pear? Mine has split screen and two part drivers side.

With the careful use of O rings and a couple of penny washers you should be able to fit a CAV 296 filter element inside the bowl. Otherwise replace the complete assembly with one compatible for the 296. The dimensions of the head are very similar, you just need to ensure that the connections are correctly handed and threaded. The link is for picture reference only. There are variations on the actual layout and bottom bowl. Your local fuel injection specialsit will be able to advise you and obtain necessary parts.

If you mention which town you live in you may get more replies.
