Correct oil filter

Featured Posts

This is a picture of the filter fitted to my son's russell newbery engine, it has a slight leak so I am going to change it. Can anyone tell me if this is the correct one?

It all depends is the answer. The original owner of my boat fitted a filter larger than the standard, but it doesn't look dissimilar to yours. I can't remember the number off the top of my head, but I would just replace like for like,

I've just done a comparison and mine is an ALCO SP822 which is a direct replacement for Baldwin B975, as is your FIAAM FT4777. There is a cracking site www.oilfilter-crossreference.com just type in the number off your filter and it gives you all available alternatives

I'm now too looking at doing my filter and after 2 years of not being able to find the correct filter I have found a lorry filter screw head that will fit my purolator setup

 

my question is do any of you guys know if your filters have a bypass valve in them and if so what rating? think the one I looked at had a 1 bar or a 2.3 bar bypass. my filter is going in before they oil pump pressure relief valve as its still got the stock side filter with control valve.

 

or am I correct in thinking that I need a hydrolic filter or high pressure rather than a normal type given the pump is putting about 90+ psi I pressure threw the current filter as its before the stock remote oil relief valve?

Do not that oil filters need routine replacement, it's not normal practice to wait till they devolop a leak or other problem ?.
