Bill,

Thank you.  I won't do that again, but I would consider cleaning the housing.  There was a LOT of caked dust inside.

The air pressue in my on board system was not very high.  In fact  it was so low that I switched to my little shop vac.  Some...

It is hard to believe, but a dirty air filter (on dirty side only) is more efficent than a clean one!  And as B M said, it is not recommended to blow off a air filter in a attempt to clean it.  You end up getting dust on the clean side which ends...

O.K.  Now I am worried.  As you can see in my original post, there was not much dust.  However, I did blow from both sides %#@&.  There was not a lot of dust.  Should I order a replacement and swap it out soon?

Now I'm thinking I really screwed up.  Where is the best place to order a filter and have it sent 2nd day UPS to me here in Kansas?

Can NAPA get one for me?  I know that NAPA is pretty good about getting stuff within a couple of days.  We don't...

My solution:

I am going to NAPA in Fredonia, KS first thing in the morning.  The NAPA warehouse is in Kansas City so they should be able to order one for me and have it no later than Wednesday.

Whew!  Thanks to all of your good advice, I think I...
