Re: Model A engine pans

Shew01 … I would get rid of that paper air filter on your carb, swap it out for the steel screening type. Eliminate the fire hazard.

You need the other two for a set they came in 3, oil, water and gas and were painted white for oil, blue for water and red for gas. I think they were for the earlier Model T days.
