MG TD TF 1500 - Early TD Air Cleaner, needed

I have been trying to find an original type air cleaner for my 1950 TD. I understand it is an AC oil bath air cleaner. I know that these air cleaners were used on a lot of other equipment in the '50's. Would anyone on the BBS have any information on cross referencing this air cleaner for use on other things, especially tractors. I can get the intake plenham (I think) but I still would need the correct air cleaner.

You have all been able to help before , so I put it to you all again!

They show up on ebay from time to time. I managed to get both the intake and oil bath air cleaner that way in the last year. I had to clean them both up but they came out pretty well.

Here is a current listing. 170914479013

This one is expensive $225 I think. I paid well under $100 for the one I got.

The one currently on ebay - # 170914479013 - is only the intake manifold, not air filter. That is pricey!
