In Reply to: 8N Breather Door Clip posted by Dean on February 17, 2018 at 09:13:10:
In the MPCs I do not see any such part shown or listed and I have never seen any spring clip on my 8N air cleaner as you describe but that doesn't mean there wasn't any. Funny thing is the 8N air cleaner door, p/n 8N 9661, uses a special stud that screws into the hood and secures with the 1/4-28 Wing Nut. That stud is one of the parts that fell thru the cracks when they published the MPC. It isn't shown, thus no part number. The only part I see shown in the September 1952 MPC is p/n 34143-S; 1/4-28 square nut that is crimped on the back side of the hood for the stud, no spring clip shown. Is this possibly what you seek? Page 58 in the MPC shows the air cleaner door, but you'll need the 52 MPC to see the square nut.
