I believe it was an option. So, it may have had one from Packard. Check the x-ref on this site for filter element numbers.

I think Max Merrit has the kits. Or at least the parts you would need.

ok, mine looks different than the one in the picture. I was a little disheartened when kanter sent me the wrong spark plugs after explaining that I didn't have the 10mm plugs then the filter didn't fit and my carpet still hasn't shown up after two or three months and a lot of calling and running around. Is kanter a reputable company? I feel like I am paying a premium with them and they have horrible customer service. the parts that I got through them for my 43 dodge pickup were good but expensive! $50 for a bearing? I traded the truck before I had to do that.

If you don't have the oil filter housing, I have one for you. It's from my '53 327 and I won't be needing it for what I'm doing. Compared to the rest of the engine, it's in fine shape, but would need cleaned and painted. The oil filters SHOULD be available at any parts store, and the lines are also available in their brakeline section, you'll just have to bend your own. Incidentially, you can have my old lines to use as a pattern to make the new ones.

As for Kanter, if you do a little shopping around you can find parts that will fit for cheaper, just depends on your idea of "originality".

As for their business practices, I have no idea, I've never dealt with them, and don't plan to unless it's last resort.

My '49 was a California car originally, and evidently came from one of the Earle C. Anthony dealerships. They were (I've been told) installing a filter other than the Packard factory offering.

When I got the car it had an oil filter that was six inches wide and eleven inches tall! It was an old-style LuberFiner oil filter. Filter elements for those being just about impossible to find these days, I gave the LuberFiner filter to a friend and installed a standard Packard unit.

That LuberFiner was so big it dwarfed everything else on the left side of the engine compartment.

Pardon me for interjecting but that is the Electromatic clutch control valve.

Exactly right. If you notice these parts are on a Custom 356. You can tell in part from the water neck that is cast.
