Spin-on Hydro Filter Info
Posted August 03, 2011 - 07:11 PM
I am referring to item #21, circled in red and also in the upper left. The adapter in the upper right is available, but some of the parts to use this are not. The only other option was to watch e-pay for a complete assembly.
Thanks to info from skyryder2 (Keith), we have another option.See pics:
You will need two of the fittings. This will work best with a Wix filter #51068. I have not done this as yet, so do not know if you have to fiddle with the lines some to get it hooked up. But I wanted to get the info posted in case someone was looking to buy a new in-line filter. This is substantially cheaper, both initially and in the long run. This is all the info I have at the moment. I hope to get this set up soon, but I just bought the $100 one and hope to save someone some money. Good luck!

I would like to convert my inline filter to a spin on filter.
At $100 a pop for a new filter, I suspect that the one on my recently purchased 1976 LGT 165 has not been changed.
Although I'm not having any problems, I would think that after 35 years, it wouldn't be a bad idea to change the fluid/filter.
