How much power can the stock oil bath air cleaner support before it really starts chocking things off? Anyone run the factory air cleaner on a modified 34pict3 with a larger vent, displacement 1776-1835, mild cam, etc? Just curious about how much you can realistically expect to get before the air cleaner becomes a limiting factor. Thanks!

My guess and just a guess is that the oil bath filter is less restricting than any filter with an element.

Here's a very well done "stock looking" engine compartment I saw in Kentucky a few years back. Hi Jerry!

That is what it looks like to me. I thought the cranks were stored on the inside of the engine hood. I have a crank for mine and I put it where jack is stored. I think I'll fab up some brackets for mine in engine compartment like in the photo.
