Stubbyie you can take that apart and unroll the steel wool then you can clean it just like it came originally. Around the edge of the container, without the oil container on the air cleaner, you should see some electric spot welds. Take a thin knife blade carefully slide it down between the cleaner body and that thin part that keeps the steel wool up in place use a small hammer to tap the blade through the welds. Mine had 3 spot welds but I have seen up to 4. Once you separate the spot welds then you can take the holder out. I had a pail with some gas in it and kept lifting the steel wool up and down. I had unrolled the steel wool to begin with. After you are convinced it is clean and fairly dry you can roll the steel wool up. I used a toilet paper center cardboard to roll my wool up on then I put the cardboard roll over the center part in the air cleaner and slid the steel wool off the cardboard onto the air cleaner just like it was before you cleaned the steel wool. Then use a drill to drill small holes through the spot weld marks and pop rivet them back together. Richard
