I have a 1959 971 D, so it has the early rectangular air cleaner. I have noticed from looking at for sale ads that these tend to rust out. I open mine and check it frequently and usually find some water in it, which would explain why they rust out. I finally got to thinking that maybe there is supposed to be a gasket there. So I checked on Messick's site and sure enough there is. So if you have one of these, be sure that you have the gasket. I have one on the way now.

Mine has that depression. I'll have to do a little experiment on it to see if it leaks. A plastic washer would probably seal it.

That's a good idea. I hadn't thought about the washer.

Making sure that the gasket is there is great advice! I actually think the primary culprit is the precleaner. If you look on the top (at least on mine), the center of the precleaner cover is concave, which would allow water to run down the air intake into the pan. Since mine sits outside 9 months out of the year, I've taken to putting a coffee can over the top.

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
