I just got outr of the Navy and we blew out all of the filters. We could not use pressure above 20 PSI due to creating holes. Just my .02 cents

Brian, according to my book, ( for the 68 5A) the oil bath cleaners should be serviced, ie. cleaned and refilled every 3000 miles or less if in dusty conditions. Mine were converted over to dry cartridge type at some time.  I change mine once a year because 1. i have about 5000 miles more or less on them. and 2. that works out to about 100 hrs. on them more or less.

If you read that they are speaking of the 2 pc filters inner and outer .
I just got off the phone with the guys in Hasting Ne.
They told me the single air filter is made different and uses different materail than the 2 pc and follow the manufactures recommendations as they are written by the filter company for that engine.  




good luck

Thanks Clifford and Dallas for posting that reliable information. I will follow their guidelines now as they say it's OK to blow them out. Just make sure you know what kind of filter you have, cheapo or worth the extra bucks for a good one. I'll spend the extra few bucks to make sure it's the best filter for the job at hand.

I'm just glad we don't have dusty windy days here in West Texas! Yeah right! Grin

Not to be washed and reused is the way I read it and I knew that.

Well, Hows that for ambiguity! LOL
At the beginning of the paragraph it says washed or reused and in the last sentence it says washed and reused.
That leaves us right back at the beginning.... and I always use to blow them out also.

Not to be washed and reused is the way I read it and I knew that. 

good luck

That's the way I read it to, now what kind of oil do I use? Roll Eyes

Well i went to the Mythbusters site

They will only do it, if they can blow up something, Maybe ask if a dirty air filter will make a engine blow up?  LOL  Jack
