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.
Step 1, of 8 Steps. Remove the air cleaner from the firewall.
Cut out the cross-shaped piece below the steel wool.
You need one package of 3M Filtrete home furnace filter material.
The package contains a 20x30 inch sheet.
Cut it into three equal strips.
Assemble into one long strip.
Roll it up into a roll slightly bigger than the opening.
Compress and insert the roll.
