Where does the air cleaner go?

My project this week was to figure out how to install the stock oil bath air cleaner. My car has a  Stromberg side draft carburetor and the air cleaner sits to the left side inside the bay attached with a bracket that is attached to the manifold. But which bolt?  I finally figured out that I required both a bracket (that I bought re fab from Myers Studebaker) and an adjustable arm, that I by luck still had.

I took the air cleaner apart to clean it and add new oil (40w recommended) Now for cleaning, there are many suggestions: wd40, kero, laundry detergent, gas...  I'm going with the laundry detergent, big surprise
