Air intake on Westerbeke 13?

Ok, this is embarrassing, but I'm at a loss and will put up with a little shame in order to find out. This is my first diesel, but have time on gasoline engines. I've looked over the engine repeatedly. I checked the manual over and over and there's no mention of an air filter (or an air intake for that matter). I've searched all over the internet, but I can't get an answer. Nigel Calder shows two types of air filters and they both require maintenance (paper and oil-bath).

Does anyone know where the air intake is on this engine?

My guess is it'll be hiding under the heat exchanger reservoir, far side.
