Does anyone know if any of the 31 Auburn 898A's came with an air cleaner on the Schebler TX carburetor? I have one on my Auburn but do not see it in the parts manual. *** I just noticed in the judging notes the air cleaner was offered in later 31 Auburns.***

With that said, does anyone know how the connection was made between the air cleaner and the rear tappet cover ventilator tube? Was this a flexible tube or a fixed tube - what material? Both the ventilator tube and the air cleaner have a 5/8" inside diameter connection.

Any input on this would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Ken,

I don't believe the 8-98 was supposed to have an air cleaner. The early 8-100's didn't have one either. That said, if you drive the car, having an air cleaner is certainly a good idea.

I am the owner of Bill Butlers Auburn. I happened to notice recently that there is no air filter and did wonder if I was needing to pick one up. The car has been repainted and the interior and top redone this past year and I wondered if the air filter may have gotten lost in the process. Can't recall if there was a filter on the car when I bought it nearly 2 years ago.
