That is what I have noticed too.
And I did have a very early 58 Sprite, unmolested but neglected, and it 
had a knurled nut.
Now Horler's book is quite good but it is not perfect.
There is a photo of somebody's air cleaners that are installed 
upsidedown. And I have seen concours quality cars with upsidedown air 
filters on them.
You would think that if your air filter housings had DRAIN holes in them 
you would install the holes DOWN!
