Default Re: early 1933 air cleaner?

If not late '31 then very early in '32. Its one of the earliest of the prototype engines for the '32 model year. The starter location alone rules it out as having any practical application as it would have reduced the seating capacity of the coupes, roadsters and cabriolets from a tight-fitting three down to two.

Do you think that the exhaust manifolds, engine block, etc., etc. are also made of aluminum given their light color?

I like the idea of the water inlets along the pan rail.

I have only seen one of the trans cases with a side greaser. How long into production were those used?

Thanks Paul J.

I'm up here in Canada & my grandfather had a cement mixer that was powered by a "Made in Canada" flathead out of a 34 Truck (assuming that based on the grill shell that was also used on the cement mixer, also it is an "early" style motor), I re-purposed the aircleaner on my 8BA powered Model A (apologies in advance for posting a hot rod picture , but thought it's ok in this circumstance) & yes it does have slightly tapered sides, happy to have found this thread, explains why I haven't seen many of them !

Thanks Paul J.
According to the Club's book written by David they were used through engine # 18-6932. I happen to own two of those cases one being 18-3014 and the other 18-3924

Thanks for the info. The case I saw was broken but not for sale, I wanted it for reference and an example of the early '32 parts. Paul J.
