Does anyone have an 18b without the air filter housing (Nick's last code in the online listing)? I strongly feel these are due to die/mold damage or wear as the latest one I found had a tiny part of the filter housing formed off to one side (and it's clearly not broken off).

Oops, I meant to post the photos of the missing air cleaner, here they are.

To further clairfy my comments in the first post, I think the variation with no air cleaner is valid. I think this failure of the mold likely speed up the replacement of the 8b/18b with the C model.

Hello Joe,

By co-incidence Henk posted one of these without air filter but more rounded top a couple of days ago.(1-75 section) I hope Henk does not mind this being added here and I have cropped his photo and added some text to show it is his photo. It is also worth noting the mould damage was occurring on the lever being held by driver on both your model and that of Henk.
