I also read a thread a while back not to use PVC and I can't remember why.You might want to look for that.
Good luck.
Ok, I'll check on the PVC thing.

I have an automatic also.

I had another thought, has anybody gutted the original filter, pulled out the stuffing, then put a cone filter on the top??
From what I remember there is some type of cap on the top that has some rubber straps, I am sure a cone filter could be put on there if the box was empty.
I have to wait for better weather, got 4 bad days ahead, just got home in an inch of snow...arrgh.
