Maybe he wanted a super-sized oil cap that filtered the air too. :D

Looks like he thought it was decorative. Did you see the kink in that tow bar? He was pulling something WAY over the weight limit.;)

A lot of people do this in a attempt to keep the blow-by smoke in check,the filter allowes the oil particles in the smoke to condense & it will drip back into the motor rather than on it(not all but some of it)Either that or a tube from the breather cap back into the carb.
to re-burn blow-by

Well Anne, who knows what he was doing, but my take is; the small engine air filter is just setting there! Note it is off center AND there's a chrome Oil Cap sitting on the Manifold. It would be pretty hard to add oil with that contraption mounted!

On my OHV 6, the oil cap IS on the top of the valve cover; exactly in the same place as the breather is on this engine. That oil cap on the manifold has me puzzled though; I'm not sure why it's there.

YIKES!! Did you read the seller's feedback? I don't think I've ever seen a bigger war between eBayers![:0][B)]

That's the trouble with feedback- this one could be an unnecessary overreaction based on a simple misunderstanding... hard to believe it's as bad as all that...[xx(]

Were I interested, I wouln't be put off based solely on that feedback... would rate an e-mail or 2 and maybe a phone call, though...

Ya know... that's not a bad little truck. I finally went to the eBay ad and read that it was a Texaco Oil "in the plant" truck, if it actually was IN the buildings the crankcase intake air filter makes a bit of sense. If it's real, it could be for the dusty conditions outside.

The cool thing about Stude. Trucks is that to put a 259/289 in there, you do not have to change, brakes, springs, rear end and all, because the factory used all the heavy duty stuff on all of them! All you need is a Truck bellhousing & mounts, T-85 O.D. Trans and the V-8 and you would have a "real" Truck! [^]
