Briggs Foam Air Filters to Oil or Not

Recommended Posts

Did a search but didn't come up with a definitive answer on this. On the old Briggs 23D engines that have the foam filter, do you all oil it before use or use it dry? If oiling, what weight & type of oil?

Thanks for the replies guys. Oil it is! sm01 I have aftermarket foam filters on my old motorcycle that I oil, I just wasn't sure on these. Thanks again!

What kind of bike?

If you are speaking of the old, all foam filters, yes they should be oiled.  If you are speaking of the the thin foam pre-filters that go over the paper filters, I would not oil those.  IMO the paper filters will absorb some of the oil and that will affect their ability to breath.

Yeah, it's the old foam filters, not the pre-filter. Thanks!

I had one of those, instead of valve springs they had tiny torsion bars. Loved it!

I messaged Rich with a photo of it because I didn't want to hijack the thread, but since you mentioned it, here's mine :D:

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
