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!

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.
