I have a Ford 1500. I just remove the stack off the filter and in goes the WD:-) It's a wet filter. I haven't run it out of fuel lately. I went to using premium diesel and have been making a habit of topping off the tank before taking it out. I bought it when it was almost new in 1984. I tend to keep things. I still drive the Chevy pickup I bought new in 1987. That runs on gas though.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Yes the wet filter would be OK. I had not thought about that style. I have them on the old Massey Pony and Pacer and #81.
I would think one should not do it if a dry filter was inline as it might receive some expansion after ignition.
I prefer dealing with the older equipment also. I still have my 67 GMC 1500, not licenced, but would like to restore it if I ever win the Lottery!

To answer the question about technique . . . My tractor has a clutch crank interlock. In order to crank it, the clutch pedal must be held down. To crank the starter while spraying WD40 into the air intake, I have to stand on the clutch pedal, lean over the steering wheel, turn the key, and spray the WD from an aerosol can. Once it pops (which is right away), I can get off the clutch and the key and just keep the spray going until I get two cylinders firing. It is like spraying ether in a gas engine . . . only without the singed eyebrows:-)

Lacquer thinner on a clean rag works well...but may hurt the aluminum sealant on more modern Airstreams.
