NEW OIL FILTER NEEDED

Recommended Posts

This is the oil filter on my 1933 Dodge, I need a new one because I am sure this filter is in need of replacement.

 

I am not sure how many miles these filters go before having to be changed, car has 36,000 miles on engine. not sure when last was changed. 

 

the engine is a 1953 Dodge 230, can anyone point me in the right direction to get a new filter?

Try G & G Moparts in Colton, California. (909)825-1231.

A friend told me he got filter stuff from Roger the parts guy.

Sack, what you want to do? Get one these guys are recommending or get one $20-$39 cheaper? Nice guys that see me offering you one for $30 and yet they feel like helping you out with a tip of the day. I don't get Mopar bro's!!!!

Replacement can filters were widely available a few years back but seem to have been obsoleted recently. I would recommend finding a replacement cartridge unit which makes changing the filters easier and the replacement cartridges are easier to locate.

The Fram C4 was very common too. But the cartridges are not that plentiful around here now either and the price makes your hair curl.

^ Interesting. Up here in the states they're still fairly common and not obscenely expensive.

You should be able to get them fairy reasonably from ebay with the international shipping option.

YES, thank you, what would you be willing to part with the WIX WF-5 filter, that looks like the current one I have. 

Yes, I would part with any or all of them.  You probably didn't notice that the WIX WF-5 is about 1/3 the size of the others.  It is 3 1/2 wide and 4 1/4 tall.

The link to the AC filter on ebay provided some very useful info for me.  We have a customer at the shop who owns a restored 1949 International KB2 and it has the "hang-on" oil filter setup.  Both fittings on the short length of tubing between the bottom of the filter and the engine block were seeping oil.  It seems that changing the filter can cause leaks because the brass fittings take an impression of the tubing flare (especially if over-tightened) and upon reinstallation a slight mismatch between the fitting and the pipe causes a leak.  Well that ebay auction included a pic of a "caution" illustration describing how you install a short screw in the elbow fitting at the bottom of the filter before trying to unscrew it from the filter.  It keeps the soft brass elbow from distorting or collapsing.  Very helpful info!

well after looking for a while for a new replacement filter, I found an OIL Filter Canister off a 1934 Dodge pickup at a local wrecking yard, I restored the can and painted it, got a new filter and got it hooked up to the same location the old filter was on. lots of cursing later, and here is what it now looks like.

I still have the original air filter bath that was on the motor, it is large round and black. I like it but it constantly leaves oil around the rim of the carburetor and is very restrictive. 

 

I usually only put it on for shows, but I cruise around San Diego with the screen filter. it also makes a cool sound now. :)

I have thought about relocating the oil filter to the firewall or somewhere more convenient to clean up the engine, but that would take away from the originality of the engine.

I used to drive my Studebaker to the sound of the carburetor. Kind of like a cistern coming to a stop when you gradually life your foot!
