My air cleaner is missing the screen that goes under the cap at the top of the air cleaner. Rice Equipment sent me a screen but I think something is still missing or the screen is wrong. There is no seal between the screen and the input pipe; or at the cap for that matter. Are there pictures anywhere that might show details? Or if someone were willing, could you snap some pics of the thing from different angles, maybe assembled, part-way disassembled and separate parts?

Otherwise I have to wait till tractor show season to look at one myself. I don't know anyone locally with another F-20.

Thanks.

Paul

I think the one I have is a 39--- not sure, never paid any attention to it really as it was a package deal---had to take it to get the one I wanted. Right now weather has me grounded, so I cant get to the shed to get pix, but I think it has a complete air cleaner on it. I remember seeing the screen.

Thanks for getting back to me. I did get some pics from another source so pretty much know what I have to do now. Basically have to fabricate a "donut" that rests on the rib on the intake pipe and which then supports the bottom of the screen. Top of the screen seats inside the cap. Not sure if I can force some sheet metal around a form or if I'll have to turn it from solid stock and make it look like a metal stamping which I'm pretty sure it was originally.

Thanks,
Paul

Here is my air cleaner's pre-cleaner rebuilt. Found the screen part at Rice Equipment, but it didn't come with the supporting base part that holds it up. I didn't really have tools or form material to try to bend/stamp one but did have a billet of steel large enough so I machined it out of solid.

Thanks to all who replied with help and pictures.

Looks about factory original in your photo. It's nice to have the right tools and skill to do something like that.
You're teasing us with just that one small angle photo of what looks like a really nice F-20.

Well, here is a shot from before I moved it to my current location. It had been in storage for 40 years on the farm where I grew up. A younger brother had painted it in the Ag shop when he was in FFA in high school back in about 1978. Obviously needs rear tires and tubes. Ran when it was parked so hopefully won't take too much to get it going again.

Looks in pretty good nick for an 80 year old machine.
Hope you don't run into many surprises as you sort through it.
