Air filter conversion

I see that Ron Fitzpatrick carries this air filter conversion. Does it work for the M38 as well? Any experience out there using this product? I haven't looked up my filter part number but it seems similar or identical in size to the MB version.

I cant think of any reason that it wouldn't work on a M38. I love the idea of getting rid of the nasty oil and sometimes rusty sludge all together!

the Oakes filter OKS 613387 is the M38 element...personally I see no advantage, got to change oil and drain Cuno anyway...

Less mess I guess. Not that I will be running on extremely dusty roads anyway so oil bath may be adequate.
