Changed my 1957 oil bath to a paper filter
« on: August 07, 2010, 04:49:47 PM »
I have dicided to modify my oill bath Cleaner to a paper eliment . I did not want to distroy the original  Oil bath lid . I machined  from a peice of 5/8 thick 7075 aircraft Aluminin a lid that looks exactly like my original lid , but also machined a groove on the farside that will fit a 8 inch puralator filter , also the o ring grove is in the plate to make the seal  where the lid meets the housing . this makes changing the filter very clean and easy . i have added some Pictures .

Bill -

Looks great!  Nice work!  Please share what manufacturer and p.n. filter you used.  Also, what paint did you use -
that gold is VERY difficult to get right, and yours looks correct.  Now all you need to do is work out the dual-quad
filter pods and you'd make a LOT of us happy!

Regards,

Carl Schreiber
