crankcase breather gauze

Postby 4mikey7 » Sat Nov 28, 2020 4:56 pm

The gauze is missing from my cubs filler cap. Have searched parts stores to no avail. Does anyone know where to find it or what to use as a substitute?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think my oil filler cap/dipstick has anything inside the cap, only a wire mesh over part of the bottom inside of the cap.
I have an excuse. CRS.

To that end, you should be able to come up with a replacement it you're concerned about dust and/or debri getting into the oil pan. I know "chore boy" used to have a course metal looking scouring pad that could probably be torn apart and loosely stuffed into the cap. Keep in mind it's a breather cap, so what ever you use, not too much or too tight.
Why is there never enough time to do the job right, but always enough time to do it over. :?:

Kitchen exhaust vent grease mesh looks like a good substitute.

I used a course metal scrubbing pad cut in strips and pushed in packed in with a narrow rod . Had stayed in place for years.

Thanks guys for all your replies.
Peter, my wife offered me a scotchbrite pad. That is probably what i will use. Thanks for the reply.
