L type / air filters

Thanks to this site I saved $30. Gravely dealer wanted $41.40 for an air filter and I found replacement reference in faq. I have a question: can one use the 1/2" thick, ether type polyurethane foam to rebuild an old filter canister and if so, would you need to oil it?

I'm not sure I completely understand your question. You want to use the foam as a prefilter, or in place of the rope-like piece under the filter?

Re: L type / air filters

Hi Alex, you know I don't realize how inadequate my communication skills are till I try posting, sorry.
I have an old papertype filter that I removed the paper from and was considering replacing with a filter foam sold on the web. You can get a half sheet, a life time supply, for $13, and then just roll your own.
Thanks

Re: L type / air filters

I guess you could try that.
Personally I would stick with the original paper filter. It has decades of proven history. If your new filter design collapsed in some way, how would you know? It's in a metal can where you can't see it. Dust could be getting into the engine and you wouldn't know it.
