If you are having difficulty obtaining a FunnelWeb you can purchase them via our online store.
Why the spiky foam profile?
The filter’s pyramid foam profile increases the surface area of the filter by 100%.
This allows the filter to trap & hold far more dirt on its much larger outer surface area meaning it can trap more dust and have longer service intervals whilst maintaining optimum air flow.
Should I apply grease to the seal?
Yes. It is a messy job but it can’t hurt.
What oil should I use?
A dedicated foam filter oil, not a lubricant. Filter oils are generally designed to be very tacky to resist draining from the foam and more importantly are better able to trap and hold dirt on the foam for a longer period.
Filter oils using thinning agents are usually the easiest to apply and resist drain-off.
The more viscous filter oils are easier to use if they are warmed up before applying.
How should I oil the Funnelweb Filter?
Completely immerse the filter in filter oil and squeeze out any excess. This is the only way to ensure the filter is completely oiled. Refer to our maintenance section on this website.
What advantage does the FunnelWeb seal have?
Any air filter is only as good as its sealing capability.
A majority of our genuine, Australian Made, FunnelWeb Filter seals are an injection moulded urethane part or a die-cut, urethane / foam combination.
These seals will not shrink, stretch or tear and will maintain their shape, regardless of how they are treated providing an ongoing positive seal to the air box, ensuring any air entering the engine passes through the filter foam.
In some cases, air box design dictates the use of foam only seals which is where we use die cut polyurethane foam to do the job.
How do I know when to clean the filter?
The filter will require servicing if there are any dry areas appearing on its surface. This is an indication the dust has built up in that area and is migrating into the oiled foam.
What should I use to clean the filter?
Any dedicated foam filter cleaner or mineral turpentine.
