Oil filter adaptor (4 cylinder cars)

Recommended Posts

I have imported (sounds grand!) another batch of 10 oil filter adaptors. 

These replace the std adaptor in the block, so you can use the excellent mann W713/9 double anti-drain valve filters (Landrover TD5 I think) or indeed any VW/Ford/MGB filter which are very common and very cheap. Here Mann W916/1 is a good choice, and about £3. 

Anyway, priced at £4.50 collected (Stoneleigh, CT dinner etc) or £5.50 posted.

Excellent things these that enormously increase the choices of oil filter for 4 cylinder Triumph engines!  Well worth the modest investment.

Well, yes, but only if you pick a filter with a decent anti-drain valve..... but it does mean you have an enormous range to choose from. Nick

Those are my favourite too and they've been working very well on the Vitesse.  However, the one recently fitted to the Spitfire (courtesy of one of Clive's last batch of imports) is doing rather less well and it still takes ages for the oil light to go out.

Yes been very happy with the Mann filters on the Vitesse Remote Filter head (Discovery Filter I think), oil at end of season really clean. Nice technical department too!  I didn't risk it last year after keeping the engine in one piece in 2016 and changed the filter at the beginning of 2017, this year I'm going to follow their advice and not change the filter, although I will drain it, before refilling.
