Hello Everyone, New guy here. Not a mechanic, by any stretch of the imagination. I’m working on restoring my granddad’s 1940 Dodge D-14. I was told it was running in the last two years from the guy that had it after my grandmother. While cleaning things up and going over things I noticed there seems to be no oil filter. I’ve been all over the engine and I’m finding nothing. So, has anyone ran into one of these engines, running, without an oil filter? Also, any good suggestions on getting a replacement and the tubes? I’ve been looking around and have found some options, but my other concern is where the filter ties into the motor. I have a shop manual that I’m using, so hopefully I can get this all figured out, with some help from this group. Thanks in advance.
My oil filler tube isn't tightly seated in the block and I'm concerned it will fall out or leak or both. I'm thinking about using Aircraft sealant to seal it and hopefully make it stay in place, but that seems shaky. Has anyone else dealt with this? Is there a way to expand the bottom of the tube a little bit so it won't be so loose?
