Oil the prefilter on an Allis?? Kohler 10 HP

Recommended Posts

How many of you oil the pre filter on your air filter? My AC 710 manual says not to oil the prefilter while the package the new Kohler replacement filter comes in says to oil the prefilter???????? Do you think it matters??

Yes, you should oil the pre-filter. It is the oil in the foam that traps dirt since the dirt will stick to the oiled surface. It should be saturated in oil and the excess squeezed out. It is important that you squeeze it out rather than "wring" it out. Wringing it out ruptures the foam and reduces the efficiency. When it's dirty, wash it in hot, soapy water. Do not use gasoline or any solvent. These deteriorate the foam. After washing, rinse, squeeze (again, do not "wring") the water out and allow to dry. To save on mess, I place the filter in a plastic sandwich bag. Add oil and squeeze to distribute the oil throughout the foam. I then roll it out in a clean shop rag once or twice to take up the excess oil. Pat

After washing dirty pre filters I sqeeze them in a clean towel to soak up the water out of them. When oiling them I wipe oil on my hands or rubber gloves preferrably and gently rub the oil into the foam then put the foam in a paper towel and sqeeze the excess off soaking it up in the paper towel.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
