Hi guys,

After having the 140 HD air cleaner sit on the shelf for a couple months I have finally decided to mount it. During installation I ran into a few problems. First is the hose. We have a NAPA 7405 hose and there seems to be a big kink in it. The second problem is when the adapter is on the carb to fit the hose we are unable to move our choke up and down. Any answers are greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Well I found Robb Krugers information on the hose in the Tech section and we have found that the adapter to the carb for the hose is home made and is too wide. We are going to bring it to the machine shop and get it lathed down.

Scott, I recall that if the screws used to hold on the adapter, or the regular air cleaner for that matter are too long, they may bind the choke or throttle shaft. I don't recall which exactly.

Did you add the hole in the hood or was that a previous owner mod.

I have seen more than one where someone put a hole over the gastank so they could fill it without flipping the hood open!

Mike,

We did not add the hole in the hood. The previous owner(a John Deere Mechanic) told Joe Loch(who we bought it from)that he put the hole in the hood due to the earlier models over heating. Other than that hole there is not a single stress crack in the hood.

PS: Don't tell anyone but this is our secret at shows

I have drooled over those air cleaners for years. Sure wish I could find one, or one that is nearly identical

I've seen someone that built one of these out of a 317 canister for a 140. In just wondering how similar they are in reality?

The 317 filter housing is only slightly different.


The spot where the wing nut goes on a 317 is tapered down, a 100 series is tapered up.

I think there is a golf cart filter housing that looks like the 140 ones.
