Wet AIS!

Thanks to 100 miles of driving in Fat Alberto's rain I got my AIS filter wet. This is the second time this has happened. After the first time I made a deflector to go in front of the zoodad mod, it doesn't seal off the zoodad hole just kind of sits square with the grill with about a 2 inch gap between it and the 3 zoodad holes. I guess it works for the most part as this is only the second time I noticed it. My main question is, How well does the filter hold up after getting wet? It looks like its just wet on the half where the snorkel comes into the box. Should I replace the filter?

Well, I browsed the Donaldson web site and didn't find any obvious description of the material in their "PowerCore" filter media.

I can tell you this -- OHV air filters are typically made of a sponge-like material that you wet slightly with oil. It traps dust, and doesn't tend to collapse when wet, unlike typical paper filters.

If the filter media is sponge-like, it's probably fine. If it is not sponge-like ... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif
