While doing the Dodge engine, I came across a very simple system. There is an oil stainer at the inlet to the oil filter. This is located in the sump and to be more efficient and is not rigid

I guess the function of this would be to strain the oil and make the filter more efficient and longer lasting

No not really, it doesn't really make the oil last longer. These strainers in the sump have quite a large mesh as you can see. Its main function is to ensure that any large bits that might be in the oil don't get sucked into the pump. Also, in some cases they ensure a proper even inlet flow into the pump.

Obviously, they do some straining as well, but the real oil filter does a much better job at that. Check the manual and see if says anything about regular maintenance/cleaning. chances are its not mentioned in the regular maintenance schedule at all for these reasons.

The 1929 Ford A has spark plug connectors made of brass. No plug wires, hence no insulation, imagine the shock if you touch this by mistake.

The hand brake set up in a 1929 Ford A is very interesting. The hand activated brake shoes is located within the brake drum on the wheel. You may recollect that most American cars have transmission brakes

Proper brake shoes for the hand brake

The brake drum has a smaller inner drum for the hand brake and the larger outer drum for the main brake

Ford had lots of criticism on their initial brake system, so they changed it to this.
Here is a good Youtube video detailing the arrangement some more
