Oil air breather filter

Recommended Posts

post-124980-0-91338300-1437757526_thumb.    I clean out my oil air breather  filter on my 1938 Pontiac.

Can NOT remember the amount of  oil  I should replace in the filter element.

I understand you use 50 weight oil in the element .

Thanks for the help.

Every filter I've seen has an oil level line embossed on the side.................Bob

Looks to me that this is not an oil bath air cleaner. Seems you would just wet the copper media, remove the excess, assemble, and install.

Cheaper filters were oil wetted not oil bath. If there is no reservoir at the bottom it is oil wetted. You could try motorcycle filter oil or just wet with motor oil.
