Cub LoBoy 154 Air Filter Cheap Replacement

Sun Nov 10, 2013 4:07 pm

I am wondering if there is a cheaper replacement option for the Cub LoBoy 154. The replacement part is over $30 on ebay. My local TSC (Tractor Supply Co.) can not even order the replacement filter. Is there an auto filter that is interchangeable with the 154? I had the idea of taking the existing dirty filter apart and trying to find a cheaper auto filter to put inside. I have the newer filter type where the air filter top is also the lid for the air filter canister.

Has anyone ever soaked a dirty filter in de greaser solution to clean it out?

I guess I am cheap. But it just "fries my hand" to think a simple air filter is going to cost me $30+ .... any ideas? :help:

Don't know about a replacement. Local auto parts store can obtain the air filter.

Never tried degreaser. Have blown out a lot of air filters using compressed air.

I wash out my shop vac air filters with running tap water, then let dry. Washing works pretty good several times, then the filter deforms. I keep new shop vac filters on hand along with the previously used washed filter.

Anyone know the NAPA part number for an air filter?

Looks like 405 716 R1 IHC to S/N 20744 . NAPA is FIL 2965. Wix is 49265. Fram CA30. AC A493C. No where near $30 but still expensive.

If you go to O'reillys they have filters for the LoBoy. I just bought a 1972 LoBoy and they had the plugs and filters for me. The air filter replacement that matched what I had was a WIX filters 42965
The oil filter is a WIX filter 51153

I can't remember the exact prices, but I want to think the air filter was $17 and the oil filter was $9

That is the correct Wix number, I guess I was a bit dyslexic on my post - $17.99 at O'Reilly's and $17.25 at NAPA.
