You do what you want. But that was a oil that was to be avoided for foam chainsaw filter oil.
K&N oil would get sucked from the filters into carbs.
Straight info from a west coast logger and porter years back I was talking too.
Which filter oil to use on those foam filters.
Jason Egan = belray foam filter oil. You want the nastiest, tackiest oil u can find. When cleaning, soak filter in gas to cut the oil, then run under water to restore the filters shape
me = what brand was it that was getting suked into the carbs ?
JE = k&n
JE = Filter is only as good as the oil you’re using. If the oil is thin and not tacky, you’ll pull oil out of the filter. A dry filter doesn’t filter. You can use any oil you like, but you’ll be re oiling all the time
Using belray, I’d clean/re oil my filter 1-2/month. That’s was running saw at 30hrs/week
