In a discussion of air mass meter failures (I presume that is what MAS is refering as I don't think any C cars had MASs) I read recently it was pointed out that the reasons for these failures is often a aircleaner situation. Slight leaks or lack of maintenance causes a dirt layer to insulate the film used on the new hot film mass meters. The hot wire systems in previous LH systems were more durable because they had less surface area to foul and they had a burn-off function after shut-off. (The wire was taken red hot for an instance to clean it)
