Questions: Does this Oil filter Canister fit onto a 1942 MB, my MB is missing the assembly, and I didn't know if this would work

This model is a civilian replacement. It will work for you the military application but, when you need more filters for future use, remember to order the civilian filters. Thanks

Questions: Does this filter system use pressure to push the oil through the filter and out the bottom hose back into the valve cover? Or is it just gravity that moves the hole though the filter and out the hose at the bottom? Thanks John
Question By: John Starkey on Jun 19 2019 2:10 PM
Pressure. It goes into the top of the filter down and thru filter to tube jet hole about 2/3rd way up and down to outlet hole at bottom.

Questions: I’m interested in this filter for my 66 vw. Does it come with a restrictor? If not do you sell them. I have read I need a 2mm restrictor as this would be used as a bypass filter. I can also use the lines you have. Thanks for the time.
Question By: John Mcdonald on May 14 2018 5:37 AM
The center tube in the canister has a small port hole to keep the oil under pressure when going to your outlet hose.

Questions: I have a 53 CJ3B with a Fram oil filter canister installed, Is there a pressure valve in the bottom of the canister that will trap the oil in the canister when the engine isn't running and then open under pressure to let the oil flow through the filter and back to the sump?
Question By: Jack Lee on Oct 8 2017 11:14 PM
No, it wouldn't, they never did anything like that originally. It is under constant flow thru the filter.

Questions: Are 3 strait ports and one 90 degree Ports need to attach inlet and outlet hoses if the current engine doesn't have an oil filter? In addition to the two hoses.....
Question By: Marc on Sep 8 2017 10:52 PM
Typically you take 2 straight ports on the canister. Your block fitting at inlet would be 90 degree.

Questions: When removing my oil filter, I see that there is no spring to hold the filter down; I have to believe there is supposed to be one from the underside of the cap to the top of the filter, or it would just float under there and oil would not be forced through it. Am I correct? Do you have a parts diagram of the internals? Thank You
Question By: Jason on Aug 31 2017 8:56 PM
You should have a spring just under the cap. Call us toll free and we can help you out. Thanks!

Questions: I am a new owner of a 1948 Jeepster with a 4 cyl engine. It has a canister type oil filter. I can't figure out how to remove the filter. I have removed the bolt on the top of the canister but the top won't come off. Can you please tell me how to remove the top of the canister.
Question By: Jim Dake on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
Sounds like the gasket is just causing it to stick. Once the top bolt is off there is nothing really to hold the top cap on.
Answer By: Willys Tech on Dec 19 2011 12:00 AM
Questions: If I buy this kit do I also still need another bracket to mount the canister to? It looks like canister has it on there already? Do I mount what I see In The picture to my head bolts? Also on my timing cover I have no hole or threaded hole to attach the oil line. Is that something my mechanic could do or do I need a new timing cover? I'm going to need everything. I have a 1946 cj2a L134 flathead. Thank you! Can I get a discount for ordering everything here?
