My engine is from 1973 so should have the modern screw on oil filter like most modern cars. However it has the older style oil filter that goes inside an outer shell and is screwed down via fitting at the top screwing to a long stud up the center.

Can the old style arrangement be upgraded to the new arrangement without major disassembly of the engine?

Thanks

Garry

Hi Garry, If my memory serves me right I can remember changing the oil filter casting over from the old type to the new type on one of the Haflingers we had when I lived in the Uk, it was just a matter of removing the casting fixing bolts and changing it over. The only problem is finding the newer type oil filter casting. I had it given by Andrew Davidson who purchased all the navy haflinger parts, unfortunately Andrew died around 1/2 years ago but I dont know what happened to all the parts, I do know he had a barn full of parts scattered all over the floor.

Gary,

As said, the oil filter unit is a casting which you can take off, you will need to remove the lower engine hatch, and cross member along with the associated tin ware that goes along that part of the engine.
If you are in need, I think I have one on an old engine half casing. It would need a proper clean, preferably with an ultrasonic bath / vapour blasting. You really don't want any dirt going in that part of the engine!

John

Thanks for that - so it is doable without taking the engine out.

My engine is the correct one for my chassis but as well all know all that means is that the casing is correct. When I bought my vehicle it cam with the remains of a much older engine - casings, barrels and heads minus crank and cam. I suspect that my original engine has failed at some stage and I was rebuilt using the innards of the old engine - I have an early cam not the No5, the early oil filter and early oil filler - so maybe the crank is an older one as well.

So maybe the correct housing is in amongst all the crap I have. If I have no luck, John I might get back to you to discuss futher.

Thanks

Garry

One of my father's Haflinger was made in 1973 too and still has the old oil filter type. I think that the changeover to the screw-on type was during 1973. Your Haf was built only 59 VINs later, so it might well be that yours also still had the old oil filter type.

Kind regards, C.

Oh OK thanks for that - I thought the changeover was a bit earlier but you would be the person to know :-). Do you think the changeover would have been VIN based or engine number based?

For my part I am just looking for an easier process to change oil filters over as mine leaks a little even with new seals.

Cheers

Garry

The 500cc invacar engines I have (3) all have the later spin on oil filter housings and the engine that gets built will have one on it.

So I'll be OK!
