Can someone explain how to tell the difference between an original open element air cleaner from a new aftermarket reproduction?
I know I have seen this described on this site before but I can't seem to find.

The back side of the chrome has words stating that you should use AC replacement filter. I've not seen that on any repops. Kevin may jump in and give more detail about other differences.

Is this pressed into the chrome or is it some kind of paint? Do you have a picture? What about the base?

The words mentioned were black silk screen on
the underside pf the chrome lid. As to the base,
I have one and I will look for you shortly.

If you can't figure out how to post a picture, just email me. And thanks for your reply.

I'm still hoping someone can explain the difference between an original open element air breather base and the aftermarket? I have a line on an NOS but don't know if it is original or not. The box shows it is.
