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

Because you can get 'more horsepower & better mileage' with a K&N! Don't you read the K&N adds in Hot Rod mag??!! Wink

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.

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. ???

And a third one!

This last one might actually be ok.
....but if really serious about clean air for engine Smile

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.

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

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.

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.
