That looks like it must be the 40-up engine- correct?

The generator looks like it would have to come off to change the cartridge on a later style unit if it was mounted in the original location.I wonder how generic the later style oil filters are. I can take one off of a Hudson engine I have. But I think for now I'll just run a bypass tube. The line on the original filter is only 1/8" so I don't think its super critical but heck what do I know.

This is the filter that was on my car although the picture may be upside down. It is down low right under the generator which would have to come out or remove the splash apron to service it I'm guessing

The oil filter on mine is a sealed canister and was meant to be replaced as a whole unlike the ones I am familiar with that had a replaceable cartridge. As far as I know they are not currently being produced and the NOS ones I've seen are pretty expensive. Another option would be to get one that has a replaceable element and adapt that to my car which I might do but I'd like to be able to run it in the meantime.

It shouldn't be too hard to make a bypass line, any thoughts on sizing- 3/16ths??

Is it safe to delete the oil filter on my 39 six and just put pipe plugs in the ports on the engine block? Car probably wont be driven more than 300 miles between annual oil changes. Thanks

I thought I'd resurrect this thread since I'm getting very close to getting my 39 business coupe on the road for the first time in 60 years and the lawnmower tank strapped to the radiator support rods looks less than "factory". Has anyone found a solution? Maybe a brand X repro that is close enough to mount without cutting a hole in the trunk floor or inner fender? My car is a survivor so I don't need anything that would please a judge at Hershey,just needs to function and be safe. Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions
