ACE Air Box
« on: February 10, 2018, 01:25:37 pm »
Bought a "spare" Spectre 4809 air filter for my ACE air box from Oreilly auto parts for $3.29.  Be careful if you do business with them.   It was out of stock, so they ordered it but didn't say anything about shipping charges.   When I went to pick it up they wanted $7.99 for shipping!   Told them they could keep it and started to walk out.  They then said I didn't have to pay the shipping charge!

I'm surprised they didn't make you pay in advance...

You can buy direct from Spectre. Cost is $5.49. Buy 2 and you won’t pay for shipping. I told a sales guy there about our air box kit. The filter does not come up in their search for any particular year, make and model. Maybe they’ll add a CGT search response!

Thanks for the info about Spectre and ordering direct.   Don't know why I never thought about doing/trying that - olde age I guess!!   ACE had suggested Autozone, but my local store didn't carry/couldn't get it.  Hence the O'Reilly experience!   Now that I have a "spare" I'll probably never need it!

   AutoZone does carry a direct replacement for the ACE can for $12.99. But it comes as an aircleaner kit:

   The problem is now every time you want a replacment you're stuck with another support and chromed cover. When I found the first one the extra cover worked out nice as a replacement for the black back cover of the can. The second went on my '09 Electra AVL.
   I agree about aging  ;) . I, too, never once thought about ordering direct from Spectre  ::) ;D .
