I've got a Detroit Lubricator on my 31 and have the same problem. Mine has a flame arrestor which attaches on the front end of the carb. I was planning on finding some heat resistant, loose fitting material (think a loose weave wool felt), sew some opposing velcro straps to it and wrap the who thing around the inlet. Periodically spraying it with silicone spray would probably help trapping the smaller particles. Not very pretty, but functional and easily removable when I pop the hood. A nylon sock over the front end of the carb would probably work in a pinch too.
