oil filter update

Post by crossfire »

Hi i am just about to fitt a mk1 interceptor engine in my mk1 and i wonderd what the forums views are on fitting a mk3 oil filter system instead of the paper filter ie would it be a good update or would it devalue the car

Sounds like a good idea!

Is it easy to change the paper element type filter, or are there some pitfalls to be aware of?

I've managed to completely destroy a modern style oil filter before when trying to unscrew it! :lol:

It's a common upgrade as people have trouble getting the separate canister to seal properly.

I had it done on my old FF II and have had it done on my C-V8 II.

I would just do t..It's hardly going to devalue the car..the paper element set up is a poxy one, I would re-site the new screw on filter to a different position to that of the Mk3 Interceptor though as that is a silly position for it up on the inner wing, it makes a mess when spinning the filter off unless you rig up a catch rig as I do, ..A good place for it is down beneath the rad..easy to get to, cooler area for it etc..I say go for it with a sharp arrow there Mr CrossFire My Ole Fruit Bat :P

Hi Grant , repositioning the oil filter sounds good but does this cause any problems with using the standard pipe work for a mk3 or would it need to have appropriate pipes made to suit ?

HiYa Alan From Balham :P ..I've not tried it Alan, but I have seen it done and I will be doing mine, but whether the existing pipes will let you do it I don't know yet..I'll tell you who I saw had done it..It Was Dave Barnett(FF Dave), he had done it on his SP, and, I'm sure I have a pic but I can't find it Alan :oops:
