As already mentioned the smaller napa filter will work ( had one in my first deuce ) but heres a pic of the size difference between the two ( napa on the left ).

If the NAPA filter only flows 70ish% of the mil filter in CFM. That's a pretty appreciable difference in air flow, based on the 410 vs 265 CFM numbers given being brand new. At 265 CFM as the NAPA filter does its job that number shrinks. Seems to me that the NAPA filter even mildly dirty could cause other issues. The obvious being performance but also expense on more frequent filter changes. Not to mention oil leaks ect. Or is my thought process way out in left field?

Not to hijack the thread just something Ive been wondering about for a wile. Seems as good a place as any to ask.

No your correct. Filters are sized to meet the engines needs even when dirty. A marginal filter when new will not meet the engines needs when dirty. Then the engine will start to suck harder causing all kinds of problems in the crankcase and elsewhere.

Thank you for the conformation. Think I'll stick with the mil filter. Glade I found this post as I was leaning towards to NAPA filter not knowing the CFM numbers.

Duece and 5-ton air filters are very different. No swap there.

If I had a duece I'd be tempted to modify it by putting a 5-ton filter on the fender. They last a loooong time, and are washable.
