About two years ago I added a paper air filter to my 1926 TuDor. Today I replaced the element. Here is a comparison. I think the filter is a good addition.

I always suspected the air filter in a horizontal position would get wet with fuel and become a fire hazard.

Mine is pretty far away from the carburetor.

It shows how I made the air cleaner. Mike

Great when used on cars with starters on clean Australian and USA roads. Elsewhere though, you'll regret using one and be forced to remove it. Thumbs down from me. Plus that size filter I found impossible to find outside the USA. I've been told the black foam ones the suppliers sell are better.

Why not just use metal flexible tubing?

Having learned of the 'hot air pipe' recently, I wonder about filtration, or the lack of it. Isn't dust still going to be drawn in? Choose between filtering or the pipe? Any creative thoughts or ideas?

Not a bad idea, Mike, but for me aesthetically, I suspect flexible conduit provides too much of a 'rat rod look'..... JMHO.

Yes, I thought that would be an issue.-with myself as well- It could be covered up though with a metal weave or something else.

To Constantine.
My 21 Speedster had a foam filter on it.
It was provided by the previous owner. Unfortunately, the sponge is very flammable!!
Ask me how I know...Rats!

I see the attraction of the flexible tube. For me the concern is the not wonderful flow caused by the "coragations" of the surface. Certainly for most of the time it is of no concern. But I'm a bit of a "hot rodder " at heart. I'm hoping to build a slightly different approach tomorrow

For you the K&N is probably the answer as it is cleanable repeatedly !!!
