Dont need one - you arent gonna have to worry about sucking up dirt/dust on the water.

the big thing is if you look at air filters for rc, they are all shaped like funnels lol, they tend to cathc spray and then it drips right in the carb.

No need to take apart,
remove glow plug, flip upside down to get most of water out, flip right side up had 5 or 10 drops of your favorite concoction into the engine and carb (after run, wd40 etc...) put a rag or paper towel over plug hole and spin to clean up.
install glow plug, start, run on water 1/4 to 1/2 throttle for a couple of minutes than have fun.

you can take the engine apart if you really want to, just saying you don't have to unless the rod broke.
