I may be nuts, but only for buses

Was there an upgrade available to go from oil bath to dry filter element using the oil bath housing?  I bought the oil and parts solvent to service the oil bath air cleaner today, and when i pulled the bottom off low and behold there was no inner cup and the filter was a paper element.  i am sure it was originally an oil bath as the stickers are still on the housing that says it is an oil washed air filter.  also, there was a little oil in the bottom of the filter housing.  is that normal?  not enough that it pooled up or ran out or anything, but enough that i got my hands covered in dirty engine oil.

There are three kinds of people in this world....those that make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those that just wonder what the heck is happening. Which one are you?
