Air filters for 088
I have 085. Plus like I said, if I needed one in a pinch out on the road, I couldn't get one retail other than a $91 k&n.
Some 088 had the 085 air box, mine did
Mine is clearly 085, how that is bolted together between the turbo and the exhaust out with the sensor.
Your cdr is set up a little differently. You should be able to look from front through hood to see the bottom of the air box. Mine had a single bolt that held the lower housing secure, remove that bolt, the hose to cdr and twist and wiggle the housing off the turbo, there’s an o ring that seals housing to turbo air inlet. Obviously not a lot of room in there.
Sorry I thought you were asking about airbox.
The sensor looks like your pyro thermos couple.
I see no CDR on the 085:
The 088 has it, attached to the airbox lid, connected to a hose to the valve cover. Note how the valve cover connection on the 085 goes to the airbox base. The 085 sucks unfiltered air, the 088 filters it.
I have seen many 085 air boxes online with a CDR attached to the airbox crankcase vent connection but according to the diagram and my setup, ATS didn't intend for there to be one.
Yep, that's what it is.
The $39 NOS K&N arrived today.
The driver's side battery tray was basically gone. The wheel well isn't fully rusted through, its still pretty sturdy. Once its warmer, I'll go back and spray in some commercial grade rustoleum in there.
I had to drill new holes but there it is, new plastic battery tray. The other side is about 1/4 gone but still currently useable. I might just go ahead and replace it too though.
I read through the whole thread. Seems like quite the adventure. Good Luck.
I got a few things done today it needed.
First was an oil change. Heck knows when it last had one. The oil seemed filthly, even for an IDI. It had a basic Purlator filter. Now it has an FL-1995 and a belly full of Valvoline Premium Blue 15w40.
Next was fixing a missing leaf spring clip/clamp. I had new cheap LT HT tires put on yesterday and I noticed the missing bit. I had to grind and hammer the square U bolt to get it on, due to the leafs not being perfectly aligned. But finally I got it on. They aligned better when it was tightened down.
Then I moved on to the fuel filter. I haven't had any idle stalls since I have run a fair amount of diesel additive and fresh fuel, so I skipped a transmission fluid fuel system cleaning. The old filter was a Wix but less large than the new Motorcraft filter. The old is rusty on top!
Finally, I put this in. I've had it 2 years in other setups and it's been great. It's wired to the house battery system.
I've been looking for a battery minder like that what brand is it
No brand, generic Chinese stuff. This is like mine except mine has a red volt meter. You can rearrange them to any order.
They make 2 and 4 ones too. Just search Ebay for ... 12v volt meter outlet usb .. You'll find tons.
