I have a 1975 MCI-8 with the 8v71 engine and oil bath air filter system.  I want to convert it over to a dry filter element system and I looking for someone that has done it.  I would like a complete bolt on system.  I tried cleaning the "old" oil bath system today and it was NOT fun and plenty dirty.

I needed to get rid of the big air-oil system to free up room for a second-alternator installation.  A friend did that while I was cutting out bracket plates for the alternator -- I think he just bought NAPA parts.
