In reply to a message from R_and_J_Reilly sent Tue 15 Jul 2008:
Thanks everyone for your input. I wasn’t going to open it
for cleaning, and was aware that it’s full of, well air,
but mine has a couple of dents and one hole and needs some
paint, so I thought it would be easier to bang the dents out
from the inside.
Also the wire mesh is ok and I know that with oil it will
catch most organic stuff flying around and some dust as
well, that should be enough for me. Also mine being 3 1/2
litre I have the breather hole in the rocker cover so I
don’t want to start customizing this car…rather return it
to the way it was built.

If you were to run your engine in my backyard in May/June, it would also
keep out cottonwood and dandelion seeds. You can dribble some oil on the
mesh, and then it will capture some of the dust, but then you have to clean
it every so often.
