If it has a metallic filtering material I would soak and brush it in gasoline, let it drip dry, then hit it with compressed air. My grandpas' did it that way. May have to do it more than once. My Long tractors have a metallic power steering filter.
Thanks, it's solid black inside and it doesn't seem like the top or bottom wants to separate from the center and since I haven't been able to source a replacement without astronomical shipping costs to Canada I've been reluctant to force it open.
I guess I'll give it a go and hope it's metal.
I've read that a lot of the parts from the 1200 series db's are compatible, I wonder if that applies to this filter because I can get that one for a reasonable price.
Don't force it open . Put it in a container, cover with solvent, I'd use gas, and let it soak. May take more than one try to clean it, and you should be able to tell if the inside has a metal filtering agent.
