I have been researching this since I got my LGT 165 this past winter. It has an in-line filter and the replacement costs over $100 with shipping. I finally have found the items needed to convert to a much cheaper spin-on style. Just to clarify things, here are a couple pages from the parts manual:

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!

Thanks for the info Kenny! I don't have any that require a spin on filter at present...but I may at some point. Aside from that, I'm sure that there are many others on here who will!

I just found out the filter in the pic with the adapter will be ok in this application, also.

My LGT12H has a spin on filter. I can get a picture of that for you if it will help. I don't know if it was added or came that way though

Clint, thanks. I am just trying to get the info posted so if some one wants to convert to a spin-on, they know what works. A pic of yours may help. I bought the original in-line, so I know they are expensive. Getting this installed will save around $50-60 to start and the replacement filters are fairly cheap. Since I haven't purchased all this as yet, I am unsure if it will be a direct replacement for the in-line. The lines may have to be spread (or pulled in) some. I was hoping some one who has done this would chime in. All I know right now is these parts will work.

Mine looks original and has a Fram filter on it which I do not like. I'll get you some picture just in case it could help somebody else.

Thanks, Clint. Try the Wix next time you change. I'll see about getting all this ordered so I can compare to the in-line.

Can regular hydraulic hoses be subtituted for the stock steel lines to make this conversion?
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.
Any thoughts?

Most certainly, but they are way more money for the good ones.
