Air Cleaner
Posted by Michael B. on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 6:17 AM

Unless I am imagining things, didn't someone recently post in Tips & Tricks, making a air cleaner from a metal tire valve stem cover?  I cannot seem to remember where I saw this.  Any idea where it might be?  Thanks, Michael B.

Sounds interesting Michael, but I don't recall seeing any thing like that on this forum.

I saw the same thing somewhere.  They were used on a three deuce set-up, looked rather convincing.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

I remember seeing that in the February Scale Auto Newsletter.

Thanks, mrmike.  I knew I saw it somewhere.  I have been going through my old issues and the download extras.  See, I'm not losing my mind afterall.Big Smile  Then again, there are those who would argue that point.....  Thanks again.

If anyone is still interested.  I finally found the Tip I was lookiing for.  On the Scale Auto site, I queried "Tip of the Month" and it brought up a whole bunch of tips.  Including the Air Cleaner tip.  It was not a recent post as I first thought.  It was the February issue, but in 2013.  I did find several interesting Tips from days gone by.
