Howard 700 air filter
« on: May 01, 2007, 18:35 »
Hi, folks.    I've just managed to get hold of an air filter housing for my howard 700 rotavator. Unfortuantely it's just the outer caseing and dosen't have the air filter inside. The air filter is cylindrical and measures approx. 190mm long by 100mm diameter and has a 40mm hole up the middle. It's a paper filter. I wonder if anyone knows of a supplier or replacement which might fit. Thanks in advance.         Ian

Thanks, Shaun,    I've tried Chester in the past and he has either not replied to my emails or quoted a price for spares thay I could have bought a complete machine for.   I think I might go to my local Halfords and see if they have anything suitable there.        regards,      Ian

go to tesco and get green scouring cloths fpr a few pence. cut them into rings and hey presto you have a filter. Soak them in oil if its realy dusty. I have used this in the past with no trouble.
always have a target
and an objective.

Thanks for all your replies. I think bigbadfrankie's idea with the green scouring cloths could be the answer.I am toying with the idea of drilling holes in a piece of 40mm plastic waste pipe, cutting the scouring cloths to 100mm diameter and threading them onto the waste pipe, that should be ok as a filter if I soak it in oil. I'll give it a try and let you know how it goes.       regards,               Ian
