    It just so happens that I am in the middle of an air cleaner project. I've got some money, about half a day, two or three wire wheels and about 2 square inches of skin invested in the project to date.

    On the oil cup, there should be a stamped line that says OIL LEVEL. The cup takes whatever oil you use in the engine - even used engine oil is OK since all that oil does is trap dirt, stray rain water and crud. The little sump gets NASTY!

    Basic cleaning is dumping the oil and dirt out of the cup, wipe it out with a rag, add oil and put it back together. The filter mesh does not come out of most cleaners. Once or twice in a lifetime, the whole cleaner needs to be washed. Yep, it's a mess. I like a two-gallon (or whatever) bucket and a gallon of K-2 kerosene. (Diesel stinks too much!).

    A gallon of kerosene in the bucket, sit the filter in it, swish it around, pour some kerosene through it to get the dust and residual oil out of the filter mesh and you're good for a whole lot of around town hours.

    That is nasty stuff. You're at the right place to get it cared for. Get it done right and then you can get back on the M38.

    Sorry Sir. I know he is not far from Camp Lejeune, but have never asked a hard location.

    If you do find out, send me a private message, and I'll send one as well.

    He PMed me once with his call sign, but it's long gone by now.

    I stand corrected Senior Chief. Again, if you run across any Intel, I would appreciate it.
