  • Oil Filter Question

    One more before I go to bed. The roadster has a oil filter block on it with some modern hot rod braided stainless lines going to it. Can I replace these with tubing? Nothing flexes on this and I would like to tone it down a bit so it doesn't look so out of place.

    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

    Modifying a line from Shakespeare, I ask all you many experts out there: is there an oil filter kit that you would recommend?

    I have heard from people in my club NOT to install one because there is not enough oil pressure in a Model A engine to successfully use a filter without robbing pressure.

    Please educate me. I know that Paul Shinn uses one but won’t recommend any...

    Here is a YouTube video of an A owner in Germany adding an oil filter. A bit long but you can flash FWD a bit to where he gets the timing plate modification. Anyone else use these?

    Well, looks like my next rebuild is a B diamond block. Now, kinda knowing how the oil system is changed on the B engine, anyone have a simple way to full flow oil filter the B system?

    Pictures or drawings would really be nice.

    I haven't done any improvements to my oil pump system but I am always in favor of a filter on an oil system. To me I'd like to put one on my 31 engine but I am having a hard time convincing myself it's going to work with such low oil pressure yes I believe it has the volume but will it actually have the ability to push the oil through a pleated spin on filter. Would you need a check valve in the filter...

    Full flow oil filter on a B block
    Grumpy Senior Member
    by DaWizard
    Well, since there were no responses on the Modified side guess I'll ask this here.

    I would like to place a full flow oil filter on a B block, even knowing how the oiling works. I would like to use anyone else's experience before applying what I already know.

    Little help from my friends...

    Mac's Auto Parts offers an oil filter adaption for the model A engine. Please comment on your experience/knowledge of adapting to the Model A engine. Is it a good idea?

    Stock oil filter

    I am using the stock flatty filter for the first time on my new engine. While cleaning it up I find only one very small hole in the inner tube about an inch from the top. Should there be more? I also have the restriction fitting at the canister inlet. These holes sure do seem to be small.

    Look forward to the answers so I can move on.

    Oil blow by from dipstick
    Senior Member
    by carolinamudwalker
    I am getting some blow by from the dipstick hole and not the filler tube. I may be overfilling it. I have a full size oil filter with a 90 deg. adaptor and I always fill the new filter before installing it. Then I put 5 qts of oil in the engine which brings it up to the full mark. That is almost 6 Qts of oil total. Is that too much? Also did the dipstick ever have a rubber seal? My car and...

    Run a side cover oil filter or not!
    by les
    I'm some what new to Model A' the add on oil filter actually do much in helping keep the oil cleaner? This has probably been covered before.....however, I could not find where it was discussed. I bought a used very Cheap side tappet cover with a screw on filter but the attached inside oil feed tube is loose where it attaches on the back side. Does not look that impressive to me???? Is...
