How to upgrade WD-45 air filter to paper

I would like to preserve the stock WD-45 air filter housing on my tractor but change the guts from an oil bath to a paper filter.

I'm thinking that if I can find a cylindrical filter like the d-15 diesels used with the correct dimenisons it would be a simple matter of removing the wire mesh and inserting the paper filter.

See http://www.ytmag.com/store/parts/pics/wm_1029945M92.jpg

I've seen the guys putting conical shaped filters onto air tubes but don't like the look.

Ideally I would like to be able to open the bottom of the housing and pull the filter down and out to remove.

If I can find a filter like the one in the link that has an inside diameter that will fit snugly over the bottom of the inlet pipe it might work?

Anyone have any experience with such a conversion?

Any hints or tips are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I can't think of any reason why to do it, but if you did- given the size of the canister and the location- would it clear the frame if you pulled a solid filter out the bottom? I think it would have to flex some. During their working life, air filters were often neglected, getting serviced sometimes only 2-3 times per year. Just don't understand the issue.
