    Dry Air Filter Oil. What the???

    Hi all

    The instructions on this "filtre a air sec" packet read deal

    IMPORTANT. Before mounting, spray all foam surface with dry air filter oil. Part No. 9734.75

    What the hell's that?
    I've never heard of it.

    Maybe it means "dry air" as in no moisture in the oil. Funny way to say it but it's french after all - non?

    Hmmm, although it's a "dry" air filter (as opposed to the oil bath type in 404's etc) I think they mean it has to be fitted moist, sprayed all over with this stuff. Dunno.

    It's only a guess, but on Briggs & Stratton I/C engines, they have a dry (paper) filter that has a thin foam sock that goes around it.
    When the air filter is serviced, you have to wash this sock in petrol, blow it dry & then ad a few drops of oil to it & ruffle it up in your hands so as to work the oil right through the foam; the idea being that this collects dust particles before they reach the paper filter & give the actual paper element a longer life expectancy.
    I would assume this is something similar.
    The terminology may be looking flawed due to a missing comma or the way it's being said.(ie)"Before mounting, spray all foam surface with dry air filter oil" perhaps should read

    "Before mounting on dry air filter, spray all foam surface with oil."

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!
