Hi I have been using the fleet guard filters from the bread truck application. I have seen pictures of the same type filter that is covered in plastic and i guess gets air from the front? But I can't figure out where on here I saw it. Have any of you seen or are using these filters? The Cummins dealer is of no help. Thanks !

Check out Fleetguard #AH-1107. Get a picture before you buy it. That's what I found in my old notes.

That's what I have on mine, Bob, and it matches Flazyj's description perfectly. It's quite large, very similar to a BHAF, and the intake ports are on the turbo end of the cannister, not on the farthest end. Looks like a guy could cut more holes around periphery of cannister if desired, but I doubt it's needed.

From your description, I believe your refering to a Donaldson Air Filter, # 546314.

Donaldson packages this same filter for other companies. The NAPA number is 6314, CarQuest number is 88314

I am using this filter on my M37.

Your Welcome ! Actually I did go a few steps further, something like JimmieD eluded to a few posts up. Looking at the picture, I have a 3.0" air intake line coming out of the side of the Air Filter ( follow Yellow Line). Then I fab'ed steel 3.0" tube through the front right radiator side on the M37. This terminates in front of the Radiator angled back so as not to ingest birds or other stuff. I wanted to get a lot of cold outside air into the filter. Will it make a difference, I dont know. But it was fun fab'ing it up.

Nice install, Paul, as usual! Mine is the same filter except probably a little shorter length. The number posted by Bob is for a filter that's about 8.5" diameter by 10" overall length. The one Paul shows is more similar to the one often referred to as a 'BHAF' or 'Big Honkin' Air Filter'. Yours is more like 13+" length Paul?

Jimmie, just for you, I went out and measured the filter. The rain is coming down sideways, lightening and thunder. Filter 8.50" diameter x 9.50" long. Now I have to get in the clothes dryer just to get dry LOL
