Oil Bath Air cleaner.

Post by cobbadog » Fri May 24, 2019 7:14 am

Hi I recently bought this air cleaner bottom section as my original was missing a clip so I did a swap and now I am cleaning this up ready for painting along with the rest of the tractor.
My manual does not give a clear indication of where the oil should go and to what level. In the old one I only ever filled the outer ring and to the swedge line.

Is this correct please?

Here is the inside but I had to compress it more than normal.

The Ops. Manual I have available says, "refill to the bead with clean engine oil". What is your problem? If you want to use the word "swedge line" in stead of the word "bead" used in the UK, please do so

Fill the inner section with engine oil to the same level as the outer.

Thanks for the reply. Here in Australia it is called a swedge so that is why I called it that, no other reason and certainly not to upset you. But the manual does not say to fill both inner and outer sections and is why I asked.
Ok, I will fill both sections to the line as there is a number of small holes in the inner cylinder so that oil can flow evenly between both.
