Air cleaner change up

On my 1600 valcan nomad I changed the air filter to a 10 inch round style I took the left side air cleaner off and the through tube off and plugged the plate on the right side and added the round air cleaner I did not remove the air pumps or the vacume lines It runs great and has gobs more power . My question is is it ok to do it this way Thankyou

Yes that is what I did .I tried a 9 inch but the filter was too thick so I went to the 10 " I could only get a eldbrock but it fits very close to the engine an under the tank
