oil filter


Recommended Posts

new to the page, new to the flathead 6, just bought a 1959 dodge with a 230 , does anyone have pics of the insideof the oil filter lid? mine is a lid and a gasket, should there be a spring in there?

By 1959 I would assume all flathead sixes would have the full-flow oil filter.  Is yours full-flow?  Or does it have thin brake line tubes connected to it?  Of course there would be a thin line going to the oil gauge, but it would not be connected to the filter itself.  I do know that there is a spring under the lid on the partial flow oil filter like the one on my 48 DeSoto.

By sealed filter, do you mean the partial flow?  Just connect the lines to it.  Why would you want to convert to a sealed filter?  The ones where you change the fllter are easier. All you have to do is unscrew the top and put in a new filter.

This is from a 59 dodge 230 but can't see if there is a spring . Look if you insert the new filter and screw down the lid tight and roll the engine or start it you will know if its going to leak . Don't ask how I know.

that filter housing and lid looks very much like a DeLuxe Products Filter Assembly

The spring used on canister filter elements was to keep the canister from bouncing around in the housing.

The perforated dome used on sock filter elements was used to hold the element in place as well as to keep the element from blowing apart.
