Can't find a replacement air filter element for my 1975 280S.  It the big oval element with one port for crankcase venting.  A few sites have it listed but all say out of stock.  Any recommendations where to buy in the US?

Have you searched for 3rd party cross-references?
Filtron AE345 and WIX WA6026 are listed as direct replacement, but a quick glance at current catalogues shows them as discontinued. Maybe you can find somone online who has stock still?

Otherwise, DIY as rumb suggested may be your only option.

Hi
Sorry, maybe too late...
But let me know if that works as I still have some that I'll probably won't use.
PM me if needed.
Good luck
