Default Panzer part?

A fellow I met at an estate sale told me his father told him he took this air cleaner off a German tank.
Can anyone identify it?

Sorry I don't recognize it, but do have one piece of input:
The writing "Oelstand" and the arrow refers to where an oil level should be when checking.

Definitely an air cleaner...

The old type cleaners used an oil soaked sponge, that needed to stay wet in order to work.

Looks too small to be for a tank.

Yes,
it´s an air cleaner.
In german named "ÖLBADLUFTFILTER".
Many german vehicles were equipped with such filters!

In fact, any vehicle with a combustion engine will have an air filter. The small pipe is for the crankcase ventilation. What is embossed at the top? Looks like some sort of logo?

It's "Knecht"

They also manufacture air filters for motorcycles and generators. They still exist.
