Dusty conditions

Just bought a filter sock that goes in the top of my snorkle. It was only $20 and looks like it will work great. The sock is oiled to catch all the dust and is easily washed out and reoiled.

Maybe I've been living under a rock, but I have never seen one of these and it sure beats filling up the air filter. Much easier to access and clean.

Just a note to those that may have lived under the same rock.

Gday Crazie,
TJM down in Mildura. Just be careful because there are different sizes.

James,

The sock that I think that you are talking about is made of foam and goes on top of the snorkel and is held in place by the head of the snorkel.

If this is the one,it was for Hilux snorkels to try to stop the vibration,didn't work that well, and not to act as a pre cleaner. I have seen a few dry out and end up in the air filter box, blocking the air flow. They also tend to restrict the air flow.

The best way to avoid dust is to sit back out of the dust, this is not always possible but the head of the snorkel can be turned to face the rear of the vehicle or a pre cleaner head fitted to the snorkel.

Wayne,

The filter sock I'm talking about must be realitive new on the market. It is designed for what I said. They come in different diameters to suit different snorkels.
You take the head of the snorkle off and place it in there. It hangs down in there approx 300mm. It is made of a red filter foam and has a rubber ring on top to hold it in place.

James.

Be aware that they can be sucked into the snorkel, and are a PITA to get back out...read remove snorkle and use wire...
