The "bowl" is the 90 degree transition between the port and the valve seat. There is usually lumps , knobs and casting flash that can be blended smooth . Port matching and Cleaning up is more important than hogging out the port out larger .

[quote="Bob"](reply to post at 21:15:29 11/16/19) [/quote Just doing a little pulling and playing with a trailer plow a little, but when I take the oil bowl off there is always oil on those 6 fine screens and was thinking maybe thats blocking air flow, my oil level is proper but tractor some times is pretty not level I very seldom get in dusty conditions Thanks Ted....

Renaissance Tractor has been doing that modification for about 20 years. Port work, three angle valve seats, bowl blending and cam timing are all also required to increase airflow .

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

What are you doing with it, if working it as intended, I doubt if you will gain much, as a CLEAN oil bath air cleaner is not very restrictive.

If PULLING it, I will venture to guess that if you can arrive at some sort of tuned intake pipe (shall we say "flugelhorn") with a gauze air filter at the end there may be something to gain there.

But, FAR out of the realm of my (limited) knowledge, I probably shouldn't even have commented.
