Cowl fresh air vent 48-52

My 49 cowl fresh air vent is missing the screen. Anyone find a replacement or what did you all use?

It's a wire mesh. Go to Michaels arts and crafts and look for plaster mesh screen. The mesh screen is made of thin metal and can be bent into shape easily. It comes in different mesh size. It could possibly work.

EDIT: This is the product. http://www.michaels.com/activa-activ.../10289357.html

You may be able to find a more heavy duty wire mesh at a hardware store.

Click the image to open in full size.




I was thinking something like this;


#6, 1/8" Stainless Steel Wire Screen, 24" x 36" section, wire diameter is 0.037"
Stainless Steel Wire Mesh - #6 Stainless Steel Wire Screen


or


#4, 1/4" Stainless Steel Wire Screen, 24" x 36" section, wire diameter is 0.047" Stainless Steel Wire Mesh - #4 Stainless Steel Wire Screen


Which would you use?

Most "real" hardware stores sell galvanized hardware cloth (screen) in different meshes.

Original is always better in my book... What shape is it in? You have an extra you can part with? How much?

I'll have to run over to my shop and see what I have. I know there's at least one laying around. I'll let you know.

Remember there are two styles of lid, not sure how that might affect construction of the screened part.

The cowl vent assembly itself is the same 48-52 and doesn't change for the different lid styles. Both lids mount the same.
