    I used oil bath air cleaners on my Studebakers for years. I think they were effective. I always had a layer of mud in the bottom when I changed the oil in the filter and the engines lasted a long time. I only switched to paper elements after most of our roads were paved. Cleaning the oil bath filter and replacing the oil was a bit more of a chore than changing a paper filter cartidge. My guess is most people use paper filters for the convenience since they no longer have to contend with really dusty roads.
