Packard Oil Filter Conversion Kit - White Glove Collection

Hi all,

How many times have you dreaded changing the oil on your Packard? Maybe it’s just me… but… as a Packard owner I can tell you that I hated the thought of changing the oil simply because I didn’t want to drop the oil filter casing, re-make and replace the gaskets to the lines, soak my filter canister in kerosene, etc. I actually went out and bought a reproduction type canister that housed a spin on filter thinking that would be easier. It wasn’t. I still had to drop the canister, re-make the gaskets, open the canister where the spin on filter was soaked in oil. It was a royal pain. So …

Here’s an oil filter conversion kit which accepts a commonly found spin on filter. From the top of the engine it looks just like the original canister but underneath it’s like any modern car. No more removing the canister or making new gaskets. Simply drain the oil, remove the spin on filter as on any modern car.

The casing is machined billet aluminum that has been powder coated in a flat black wrinkle finish. It can be powder coated any color, or painted – your choice. The inside is made up of high pressure fittings, hoses, clamps and an oil filter relocation kit. The unit bolts right up to the original supply lines.

Kit includes everything needed to install, including the oil filter and hardware (minus the gaskets).

Made in the USA.

Thanks,
Crin

I'd be interested to see it on a car to see how noticeable the modern filter is underneath it. Interesting idea.

Hi Kevin,

I actually made it for my car. I'll be installing it next week and I'll post some additional pictures.

Stay tuned ...

Thanks,
Crin

Hi Crin,

That is very nice machining with what looks like top-quality components. As I am not that familiar with Packard's original oil filters, and my car ('39 Six) did not have a factory filter, I'm curious how this unit attaches, both how it is held in place and the actual oil lines. My 245 CID six has 1/8" NPT ports in the block and a previous owner has plumbed lines from those to a modern-day bracket that uses a spin-on filter. This is just screwed to the fenderwell and doesn't look that nice, or correct. I believe it is attached there with standard flare fittings - what does your unit use?? And is there any kind of attachment clamp available to mount the canister if one does not have the original Packard filter to start with??
Thanks, Chris.

Newbie, though I didn't see that Crin said so, his unit appears to be a replacement for the Purolator full-flow filters (L-8 and perhaps L-6) only used on the Packard Twelves and prewar senior Eights with the two-piece blocks, not applicable to others.

OOPS ... yes so Owen is correct. This is a direct replacement for what was on my car (1936, Std 8). I'm not sure (sadly) if what I had was an L6 or an L8 filter.

What holds the filter in place on my car are the actual oil supply and return lines through two bolts on either side of the filter. There are no flare fittings - just a gasket and two bolts on either end.

I have attached some pictures in an effort to clarify how this unit mounts in my car (and I assume other Std and Super 8s- not sure about 12s).

I can very easily modify the design to fit any other applications. I did it all in Solidworks and paired up with a local machine shop so tailoring it to your specific needs is not a big deal on this end as long as I have the necessary dimensions.

Adding some kind of 'era correct' mounting clamp would also not be a problem. I can design something in CAD and show you what it looks like way before we do any sort of manufacturing.

Just as a side note, all the fittings and hoses are rated for 400 psi ... I love to overdesign ... you should see the exospheric weapon systems I work on during the day... LOL ...

Here are the pictures. If anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to call me 618-304-0907 or email me at whiteglove268@gmail.com

Ah, I see; thanks Dave. Too bad as it looks like a nice piece and a cosmetic 'fix' for the messy oil-changing woes of those original setups. Like I say, a P.O. HAD plumbed in a modern spin-on filter in my car - just not the prettiest looking arrangement - although very functional and way better than no filter at all. Chris.

Chris and Crin:

Packard went to full-flow oil filtration on the Eights and Super Eights in 1934, along with the oil temperature regulator (sometimes referred to as an oil cooler) and finned connecting rod caps, these changes to add longevity to poured babbitt rod bearings which were in their last year of use. These engines used the Purolator L-6 but just for this year, 1935 thru 1939 used the L-8 version which differed only in how the oil lines were fitted at the inlet and outlet. L-6 connections were via female NPT threads, L-8 used a cap secured by cap screws as pictured by Crin. Both were of the disposable, sealed cartridge type with replacement recommended at 8000 mile intervals. The 1934 Eight and Super Eight installation is also unique to just that year, the oil temperature regulator is mounted directly to the water jacket side plate and the filter stands vertically, its outlet connected directly via an NPT nipple to the underside of the oil cooler, pictures of the 1934 L-6 installation follow.

I don't recall what the Twelves used in 1932 thru 1934 but in 1935 they joined Eights and Super Eights and used the L-8.
