    This is a review of a 272xp HD filter remake that has been nla for quite some time. Saw's with these filters are desperate for a new one.

    This is a prototype that @Gentleman had made up and I volunteered to check it out.

    The filter is very close to the original in just about every way possible. All that's missing is the Husqvarna logo for obvious reasons.

    I will say these are spot on the money. I give them my full endorsement.

    I would say a clamp should be figured out, surely one from a manifold boot like maybe the 395 should work out. Not sure if the elbow adapter is going to be made or not, if so that's the three things needed to convert over this style of filtering system. The filter, clamp and adapter. The hardware to mount the adapter is the same on both systems.

    I think these will be great for saw shops that have been needing a replacement filter. @Spike60 @Onan18

    I don't know anything about manufacturing this, those types of questions can be put to @Gentleman
    I can answer any questions about my opinion the prototype filter.

    Looks good
    @Gentleman
    Any word on the adapter?
    Still say if someone has quality full wraps made
    They would be a hit
    Everywhere i look people want full wraps for the 266/268/272

    I would hope that production units can be the same quality as the prototype. If so this is going to be a real winner.

    Elbow, filter and collar.
    I’m in for 3 sets.

    Take my money @Gentleman

    @Stump Shot
    Any light destructive testing yet?
    Pulling on the joints making sure it doesn’t unglue easily and such. Bending the filter element a bit making sure it doesn’t crack. Typical expections same as a husky filter.

    Yes, I found where it was seamed together and it is glued so as I could not separate it. The pleats are molded in nicely just like the original.

    Look, yes, act like, no. Fines end up stuck inside and can't be gotten out. Will not breathe like a new filter. This is my finding having tried the same.

    The elbow i have reverse engineered into a cad file would need to be plastic injection molded. 3D printing these wont work due to the thin walls of the elbow.
    Options would be to make the walls thicker, but to maintain the O.D. so it works with that prototype filter, i would need to decrease the I.D. and i dont want to give up any space on the I.D. So 3D printing these is out. :(

    If @Gentleman would like to tackle the plastic injection idea I can work with him on that.

    Good idear! Metal bushings where the carb mounting screws go like the original, should be bomb proof.

    I think he's already putting anti-crush sleeves in the bolt holes.
