The air cleaner element is a dry paper type. It should be replaced every 30,000 miles (every 15,000 miles if the car is used in extremely dusty conditions) as follows:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Remove the wing nut or bolts on top of the air cleaner housing which sits on top of the carburetor.
- Remove the housing lid.
- Lift out the old filter.
- Before installing the new filter, wipe out the housing with a damp cloth. Check the lid gasket for a tight seal.
- Install a new filter into the housing. Replace the lid and wing nut or bolts.
