    Default Air Cleaner oil/dry? Six Cylinder Ford

    Hi there,Would like your opinions on whether I can use my oilbath air cleaner or have to go dry for my 7810 engined 6600? Just was wondering if the extra cfm draw could pull some oil into the running engine? thanks

    I would install an air cleaner sized for the 401 whether it was dry or oilbath.
    Spring is the season of optimism.

    hit a boneyard and find a dual element housing and slap that on using similar out port sizing for the pipe on the cleaner.

    probably cheaper then buying a new replacement one.

    Thanks guys, I guess I'll go for a snoop in the breakers and see what I can find,I would ideally like a dry element that can be removed vertically so that I don't have to cut the hole in the front cowl...

    the later series like my 7610s has a horizontal dual element housing up front under the flip up nose.

    perhaps get one that you can remove the grill to access.. even if wet.. etc.

    might look for something for a tw or big thousand series.
