Default Wisconsin THD air filter question

My THD has an oil-bath air filter. The top of the filter is just an open tube, maybe 1.24 inches in diameter and approx. 3" long. Is anything supposed to be on top of this tube? Or, inside this tube? Didn't look right to me so I have always clamped an old sock on it to keep out large debris. But, I got curious as I would like to keep this great old engine running for many more years.

Also, is there a replacement dry-type air filter available to use instead of the oil bath? If so, where might I be able to buy one? Thank you, Brad.

I believe there should be some sort of cover. It would sit above the tube to allow air to pass through into the oil bath.

Brad,

Here's what the components for the air cleaner for your engine should look like, depending which type you have.

Bill, that blowup sure helped me see what is missing. Thank you so much. Might you know where I could either buy an entire air cleaner, or where I could get part numbers: 159A, 159B, and 159D? Thanks again. Brad

Try a wisconson dealer - they are probably in stock! Check Harry's advertisers as well.
