This filter housing came with my basket case chop project but I can't seem find another one like it to help me I.D. it.
Anyone know what brand it is and filter it takes?

Thanks

Don't recall the brand, but I'm pretty sure it takes the horsehair type filter.

Yes sir I believe your right.... You can also use the regular type filter replacement.........

Not sure that a pleated type filter would work Tattoo because both fittings are open to the I.D. One is slightly higher in the bore than the other. Might be better with a horse hair style. Am I thinking correctly? Also, who would carry these filters?

They make a horse hair replacement.... I had one on my 50 pan... But I'm not 100% sure but it's worth checking into....

It looks to me like the drop in filter should work... The higher fitting would be your inlet. Then with the filter installed with the o ring sealing the lower fitting in clean oil (outlet). No?

Could be Cory, maybe I'm over analyzing it but if both the inlet and outlet are open to the same chamber it seems to me that the oil would travel in one hole and out the other if a cartridge was installed. The path of least resistance. If the inlet was placed where it was directed into the core of the filter then it would have to pass through it to get to the outlet. So it seems a wadding style or horse hair filter is probably better for this design.

Found it!

It takes this filter: http://www.wpsracing.com/pedrinoilfif.html

The spring and an o-ring seats the filter into the bottom of the housing which separates the inlet port from the outlet. It all makes sense now.
