A "modern" air filter?

Has anyone attempted to retrofit a modern paper/synthetic fiber filter in the housing of one of our old tractors?

I want to keep the oil bath housing, but would rather use an oiled foam, paper filter, for ease of maintenance. Thanks!

i used a universal dirt bike washable foam filter with filter oil on my to20. i took a piece of pvc pipe to go between the filter and the hose. 2 clamps and a piece of pvc pipe. when dirty just wash the filter with filter cleaning spray and reoil.

I like it! Have you encountered any tuning issues? Do you feel the filter is big enough? I believe the oil bath is the best filtering method, but is too maintenance intensive. And a waste of good oil....

Argh, I remember in the mid 70's, my cousin having the exact same thing on a 357, and when around the same time an uncle's chevy 6 had carb issues that made getting the big pan out of the way often, we installed one exactly like this, an I thnk the price was about the same... 35 years later? The tobacco can is mostly to insure rain doesn't come in under the hood and get the paper wet. I keep the tractor covered, but just incase.

if you wash out the old oil bath oil filter mesh material and then keep the oil bath oil changed the orginal oil filters are fine.

think how many other type vehicles are still running strong, that were used in the extreme dusty conditions that these old tractors have been running in for 50+ years. That is a true test of these old filters.

I would just clean the mesh material and keep the old filter in good repair.

might ruin your engine if you change your air filter.
