Easy Air Filter Element Fix


 

Here's Barry Ogletree's step-by-step guide to replacing the steel wool and oil bath of the Willys air cleaner, with a 3M synthetic filter material. This is an alternative to having to deal with Cleaning the Air Cleaner, or to replacing it with a paper air filter and losing the original look.
 

LabelStep 1, of 8 Steps. Remove the air cleaner from the firewall.
 

LabelCut out the cross-shaped piece below the steel wool.
 

LabelYou need one package of 3M Filtrete home furnace filter material.
 

LabelThe package contains a 20x30 inch sheet.
 

LabelCut it into three equal strips.
 

LabelAssemble into one long strip.
 

LabelRoll it up into a roll slightly bigger than the opening.
 

LabelCompress and insert the roll.
