Model A Oil Filter Kit
The plate mounts on the front of the engine where the timing side cover is. Easy to install with no modifications at all. U.S.A.

From Snyders Antique Auto
A-6705 $99.00 / ea.
1928-31
Please Let Me Know Ok
Thanks

Post #7 quotes an article in the Model A Times that says this filter is "ineffective". It only filters a small portion of the oil, and sends it to the timing gear, bypassing the oil chamber.

ROD Post #7 >>> The second filter kit reviewed was the “Timing Gear Cover” partial flow and I do not know if this system is still sold. But the review by “Model A Times” stated “ineffective”.

Now What Bob ???

Smile Re: Oil Filter

Question:
What Are The Pro's And Con's On Installing An Oil Filter ?
Should It Be Done On A 31 Ford ? And Why Didn't Ford Put One On The 31
4 Cyl ?

What was the first car fitted with a replaceable cartridge oil filter?
Answer It Was The 1924 Chrysler.
I Wonder Why Ford Left That Important Part Off There Cars ?

Maybe Some One Can Elaborate On This Subject

Thank You Harley03joe

If you're following the "guidelines" and changing every 500 mi or so you probably DON'T need a filter. JMO

In 1955 a friend of my older brother won a new Pontiac (Canadian) in a draw, that car was the cheapest Pontiac available, 6 cylinder, no oil filter, no radio. You paid extra if you wanted those options.

Do any of you guys know if the valve cover can be welded on? Trying to come up with a leak free entry for the oil back into the valve chamber

removed the valve cover and drilled and tapped it for 1/8th inch pipe threads
Sounds like a good solution to me.

Yeah I can do that but i need a fitting of some sore on the inside of the valve cover to get the oil directed the right way. In the original system the oil is blasted frontward out the dump tube and splashes forward all over the place. I need to replicate this as I will be plugging the stock dump tube. I would like to weld an elbow or something to the inside of the cover.

I would think that just dumping it anywhere in the first chamber would be sufficient. That's what the "A-Ford-Able" filter does.

You're right, I just want to cover all my bases so I can end up with a best possible scenario situation. I definitely want to filter the oil for my new engine...don't want to blow it up either

Ok Carl. I just want to be clear. The a ford able filter literally just dumps the oil straight back into the front chamber? Nothing fancy going on...That makes things easier for me. Probably just over thinking it.

Just removed an A-Ford-Able filter with a remote canister that can be used with headers. Had to cut the tubing to remove it, but it can be made to work. Includes original instructions. Pay the FedEx ground fees and it can be yours for free! PM me.
