Anyone ever seen or done a mod to an 8n to be able to use more modern paper or washable non oil bath filters?

What is "trashed" on yours?

I've got one I'm not using, thanks to replacement parts from Jim.UT

If you can make a good one out of yours and the parts I have send me an email.

And a third one!

This last one might actually be ok.

....but if really serious about clean air for engine :)

Seems like I saw a picture of a K&N filter on an N tractor. Just slipped over the carb opening and pointed straight back. Held in place with a hose clamp. Don"t know how well it will work with so much dust flying around a tractor. ???

My original is trashed. Might be a better deal up here at 8k feet to use replaceable filter like paper or K& N I use the K&N on my 66 390 ford.

Paper filters plug fast with dust,One wet with gas will plug even faster.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeBecause you can get 'more horsepower & better mileage' with a K&N! Don't you read the K&N adds in Hot Rod mag??!! :wink:

What's really fun is when someone tries to get the best of both worlds by spraying the K&N oil on a pleated paper filter - its so thick it brings the airflow almost to a stop, like running the engine all the time in full choke.

I have a geo metro 3 banger that has room for an oil bath. There just isn't much dust and I don't drive allot. But it would be interesting. I think a problem with OB filter is handling a high flow engine. Though, I do seem to recall OB on old ford V8s.

Early Ford V8s used an oiled mesh filter.Oil bath was an option until 1942.In any case a paper filter on an updraft carberator could become soaked with gas and catch fire.
