    Default Spin on filter conversion for 3 cyl. Ford 2000

    Has anyone converted their 3 cyl. Ford, to a spin on oil filter..?? Seems like it would be a lot handier, and more economical to do.

    Since the new gaskets for the old cartridge type come folded over in it's little plastic envelope, lets just say, last years oil change got expensive... Even though I pressed the new gasket in between two pieces of 3/4" plywood, with ample weight and time to flatten, it still managed to barf about 3 qts. of Rotella on the shop floor, before I got it shut off.

    Never had that problem when they came with the filter in the box, and were nice and flat....

    New Holland offers kit part number 309825F for over $100 which does not include the spin on filter 86546614. You can probably find the adapter in a salvage yard like Wengers Of Myerstown - Farm Equipment, Agriculture Equipment, Tractor Parts, Construction Equipment, Construction Parts

    Yeah, I looked it up yesterday, and saw the price. Next question was, if anyone had used one of the aftermarket ones, and if they had any problems.

    Here's the item # of one like I bought: 380414318391

    The cheapest one on-line, and seems to look ok. Will know in the spring.

    Thanks..!! Actually, that is the one I was looking at. I'm thinking somewhere I read where you use the Fram PH-8A with these. More then likely be a Wix going on there though.

    Not getting too excited about changing oil, until everything gets done going through the "sweats".

    PH-8A will cross back to the 86546614 I menationed. NAPA 1452 is another.

    i'd use a 1452 before the ph8a.. but if on a diesel.. i'd get the oem filter. Might not be much different.. but the might think so
