49 3100 w/216. Anyone have a good part number for a replacement paper air filter element to replace the copper mesh filter in the 6" air cleaner (not an oil bath filter)? Thanks

This is from an old post.
I do not know if the dimensions are correct.

Forty9,

I just checked the size of the Wix filter in my '36 PU air cleaner. It is Wix number 42373 and it is 6" OD and 1 7/8" tall. The OD perfectly matches the metal mesh OD and I slightly extended the stud height with a coupling nut so I guess the Wix is ever so slightly taller than the metal mesh. I made that conversion so long ago I don't remember the metal mesh height. With the lid on you'd never know I extended the stud length.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the help....looks like the WIX 42373 is the ticket. Thought it might be using the WIX size chart but it's good to hear from someone who has it in use.

Keep in mind, that filter is what goes on a riding mower with a much smaller cylinder displacement. Once it gets just slightly dirty, you won't have enough air getting to the engine. You can test to find out if it is dirty by listening to the RPM when you remove it. The stock air filter flows a lot of air even when very dirty.

You have some of the prettiest piles of dirt I have ever seen! Y'all sure do stack it high too. 5,000 to 10,000 foot high in places. smile
