Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Forgot to include pic of the gaps on the end caps. I'll close this chapter of my flathead build adventure, and will now look at the V-belt "issue". Lol!

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

The slightly extra length of the CarQuest filter also resulted in greater spring pressure when tightening down the top cover. Additionally, the center grommets were much tighter than those used on...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Picked up a new filter from CarQuest, was expecting a Wix, but got their brand (P/N 85006). It's made in the USA as is the Fram, but it has an all aluminum pre-filter screen vs the paper screen on...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Ordered the Wix filter (P/N 51006). Will use it and resuse the original gasket if needed.

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Yep, it fits the center tube snugly, and may require a small shim, but not sure how much pressure there should be on the spring because as is, there is no pressure when the top cover is tightened all...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

So clearly, my gasket is about 1/8" smaller in dia than either that provided with the Fram C4P filter or the Wix 51006 filter. In some of the filter pics from RockAuto, I could see that some filters...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

No customer service at RockAuto, so explained what the issue was (on-line return), and received a store credit. Interestingly, the C4P filter is no longer listed at all, and there is no stk available...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Interesting. That hsg had the same colour paint as that on the engine, and I suspect it was mounted to the engine. The other hsg as I said was identical, but it had a nut to secure the top vs the...

Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

I ordered a new Fram oil filter from RockAuto for the factory remote oil filter housing. They listed C4 and C4P. I ordered the C4P and tried it out this morning and it seemed a little short as there...
