you must have missed my thread

check out Worst mistake ever - changing a stupid oil filter

The O-ring with the filter is NOT the one that goes between the housing and cap if at all similar to my 75 300D.. The computer doesn't have the footnote that the paper parts guide has (use o-ring xxxxx )

as promised some pics, i couldnt get them last weekend but i got them this weekend. I took them with my dads expensive camera (the one he uses to take pics at the 49ER games on the feild) to get the best quality pic so they are large!

I circled the pine needle in one picture, and the junk inside the filter. You can see the pine needles came out the bottom part of the filter.

This was a MANN filter for the 603. enjoy!

...Didnt know there was a difference in Fram's filters....
When I first got into making this old thing run I just went to Kragen's and got all the filters for the car, Fram, dunno where they were made, never knew I needed to look, but they've been in there working just fine. I've since stocked up on spares for everything with Mahle and Mann. Just realized this week the odometer ain't tickin'....DOH! Had the FL turn signal go out on me wednesday, corroded plug, fixed it, lost all turns and gauges today, wiggled the fuse, fixed it......I can see this one doesn't like humid weather already...brought home some dielectric grease tonight, have plenty of wire brushes...BRING IT ON!

Today's power loss thing made me think, how nice it is to be able to have something like that happen and know you will still be able to drive home no matter if the power goes totally dead in the entire car (so long as you already have it started)....gotta love non 'puterized diesels.

that happened to me once with a NAPA filter, luckily I caught it. The O-ring had fallen into the filter can seconds before I tightened it. I make a habit of re-using O-rings now because they stay stuck to the lid and don't fall in, I replace it when it feels like it could fail ..

also if you moisten the new oring and place it on the housing rather than the lid it'll stay better....
