Missing Air Cleaner

Wed Dec 17, 2003 9:12 pm

Hi All

Just bought my Cub a couple of weeks ago, got it home, and have only run it a few times. To my astonishment, last week when I went to shoot some ether in the intake to help with starting, I noticed a gap, where obviously the air cleaner should be installed. :shock:

Needless to say, I am now in the market for an aircleaner. How do I tell if I want the long body style or the short body style? My Cub is a 1949 model.

Thanks

David,

You want a long one. Vertical exhaust... long intake, underslung exhaust... short intake.

Don't forget, the cup is usually sold seperately.

Air Cleaner connection to Carb Intake Manifold

Fri Dec 19, 2003 9:47 am

IS the connection between the air cleaner and intake manifold a flexible connection?

Is there a part no for it, or is it just a small piece of hose? What size hose ... looks like 1 1/4"? Does it have to be high temp?

Thanks

oemtractorparts.com lists the size as 1 1/4" X 2 1/2". Standard hose will do the job.

On a 49, the original would have been a curved metal pipe with a short coupling hose at each end. If your carb has been replaced with a Zenith you need a larger hose at the carb end reduced to fit the pipe. According to the parts book, the pipe was replaced with a 1 piece hose at serial 248125.
