Nappa 6637 Question

Can you blow out a Nappa 6637 air filter? Someone was asking me and I didn't know what to tell him. What do you all think?

Anything is possible, but the whole filter is reinforced with wire mesh. I haven't heard of anyone yet

rather than take the chance of hurting the filter, i would just replace it when it needs it.

99 F350 CCLB 67k miles.

Sold: 01 Dodge cummins ECLB a few more mods to 353hp

Sold: 97 F250 SCLB, 5 speed 2wd. minor mods to 327hp

See a pattern? next I will have to find one of those 6 door jobbers...

If you're talking about cleaning it, yes you can.

We blow our equipment filter out regularly because of all the dust they encounter. They all have two stage filtering, though. The filter can handle being cleaned. On my truck, I think I would rather replace it.

Ya I was talking about cleaning the filter by blowing it out with an air hose. Sorry didn't make myself real clear. I guess if you didn't get to aggressive with the air you probably wouldn't hurt (tear) the filter. I guess it would be ok then.

It can be done. Just be sure you blow it from the inside out. If you do it from the outside, you will be forcing the dirt directly into the paper.
