Re: The Term "Oil Filter Landing" - what does it mean?

Thank you for the reply. I believe it's one smooth surface that can accommodate either size but what I can't tell is whether it's the outer diameter of the filter or just the gasket.

The Term "Oil Filter Landing" - what does it mean?
#2

Hi all,

Just curious if anyone know what the term "Oil Filter Landing" means. I'm looking at oil filter relocation kits and this website mentions the following:

Specifications
Filter thread size: 3/4"-16
Filter landing: 2-1/2", 2-3/4"
Inlet size: 1/2"

I've never heard the term "Filter Landing". I can venture a guess that it's the OD of the filter, then again it could be the OD of the filter gasket.

Thank you in advance,
Crin

Hi all,

Does anyone know which way the oil flows through the filter canister? Is it the green arrow or the yellow arrow?

Thanks,
Crin

NEW - Std 8 Water Pump Pulley - White Glove Collection
#5

Just can't stay away

Crin
Replacement water pump pulley for Packard Standard 8 cars. The original pulleys were notorious for corroding and eventually cracking right around the shaft. This replacement is machined out of a billet aluminum block.

A 1936 standard 8 pulley was used as a template. Will be happy to provide all dimensions to ensure proper fit. We also have the shaft keys available.

Made in the USA.

Purchasing information here.

Oh ... that's Bender from Futurama - always looking for the "angle". Being a Romanian Jew I always get teased that I'm always looking for the angle (as in "what's in it for me") ... just like Bender ... lol ... gotta love it. If I had a dollar for every time I was called a Gypsy ... I would own my dream-Packard.

Thank you all - much appreciated. I now recall that I was having a little trouble with that oil cooler gasket a while back and kinda blew it off. Lesson learned.

Thank you for the quick response. Now for the silly question, how do I fix it? When you say the core has a leak - do you mean the oil cooler itself? Do I need to start searching for a replacement?

Thank you,
Crin

Motor Oil In Radiator
#10

Hi All,

I keep seeing a film of motor oil in my radiator. I have replaced the head gasket, had the radiator re-cored and just today I took the car out and there was a considerable amount of oil floating to the top of the radiator.

I also notice a white foamy film on the inside of the radiator cap after driving the car.

I realize it could be a few different things wrong but I'm leaning towards this thing (please see yellow arrow in picture).

I don't know what this thing is but I do know it has both motor oil and antifreeze flowing through it. I'm guessing it's either an oil warmer for cold climates or an oil cooler ... 50/50 chance ... lol ...

I would appreciate hearing your thoughts and past experiences and hopefully resolutions to this matter.

Thank you in advance,
Crin
