Hi everyone,

I have heard that someone may be making brass reproductions of the valve that bolted on to the end of the oil filter. I'm not even sure what you call it, but the model number stamped on it is "Type SL". I have an original made of pot metal that has seen better days. If anyone is aware of the existence of a reproduction of this thing, please reach out to me. Many thanks!

Can you advise the make and model of oil filter involved?

Is the filter factory equipment or an aftermarket fitment?

Henry Yeska used to supply an oil filter conversion for the late 1920's Packards that looked like the original and used a modern spin on filter cartridge attached to an end that connected to the original oil lines. It did not use a reproduction of that fitting.

Hi,

I have an original owners manual published in August of 1928 for the sixth series cars, that for some reason actually shows a picture of this odd little contraption. I also have an owners manual for later in 1928 (again for the sixth series cars) which does not show it, on the same page!. I also have an original copy of the parts book. Packard continuously released updated pages for the parts book, so the pages in my copy range from 1929 to 1930, but it still has parts for the sixth series cars. Page 176 of the book shows the filter that Classic and Exotic is now making for the 1930 cars (7th series). Oddly enough, right next to that filter is a picture of the gasket for my crumbling valve (I included a picture because you just cant make this stuff up!). I am beginning to figure out that Packard made a change from the nuisance valve to the integrated unit some time between 1928 and 1930. Interestingly, the page in the book that references the oil filter for the 645 (updated to December, 1930) references the part in the picture, so unless I can find the "nuisance valve" that was clearly factory equipment in August, 1928, I will probably be investing in the updated canister which was in use in December, 1930. Wow, what a journey!

Here is another solution that looks original.

Yup,so there is at least one other car out there that has that same little piece bolted on to the end of that filter. Thanks for legitimizing my funky little part!
