I'm looking for one too. There was a repro on ebay in Dec, it didn't sell but hasn't been relisted. Jay's Jeeps had an original but at $1500 it was out of my price range. Let us know if you have any luck.

Ron used to have them, but his site states that it is currently out of stock. https://www.rfjp.com/p-192-air-cleaner- ... -a615.aspx
Give him a call and see when they'll be in.

Also, try Daryl Bensinger, I think he and Ron worked on a couple together. https://www.dlbensinger.com/shop/air-cl ... tyle-a615/

Best of luck!

Ron and Mike Stopforth worked on Pancake filters together. Get them while they last. This may be the last batch for a while. :(

Since Mike passed away a few months ago I don’t think anyone has repros. To tell you the truth I think Mike stopped making them a few years back

I bought on from Ron in December - I think it was his last one but call him to check.

I do have one from the late Mike Stopforth and it seems to be very good quality. Probably nicer than my original. I believe he was the only one making them.

On Saturday July 21nd 2018 Mike sent me below reply upon my inquiry for a reproduction Pancake aircleaner:


JOS I WILL HAVE THEM FINISHED IN ABOUT 2 WEEKS THEY WILL BE COMPLETE OVER TO THE METAL CROSSOVER TUBE COST PER UNIT $500.00 US DOLLARS SHIPPING TO NETHERLANDS IS $80.00 TOTAL $580.00 I WILL GET BACK TO YOU AS SOON AS THEY ARE DONE THANX MIKE


Sadly Mike got killed in a car accident at the beginning of August if I remember correct.

I don't know where those A/C's went. I even don't know if they were ever finished. However, I'm still in the market for one.

Regards,

Jos

Do the ones on ebay look like what he used to make, will email the guy on ebay and see who he is? that one is sold anyway

I was talking to a friend in UK, said he saw some repos, didnt talk too kindly about them, anybody making them over there?
