MG TD TF 1500 - ?? Which Oil Filter
|10-12 years ago bought the oil filter adaptor, but forgot from who I think either Bob Grunneau or AS. Thought I still had additional filters, nope just two empty white boxes with the stamp of GFE 148. Does anyone know the interchanges for either of these two models willing to by a few to get the right one, which I'll write in permanent magic marker on the ceiling|
|The archives has a lot of posts on this - search under "Napa Gold Filter."|
Also depends on whether you have the early or late oil pump.
|Tom, If I do the search as advised 3 different Napa numbers come to light .|
1515 / 1516 / 1300 a bit confusing I think .
Which one to use ??.
|Well, the 1300 goes into the standard late can, it replaces the felt type with a cartridge type.|
The 1515 is a bit bigger than the 1516. You can go to the NAPA site and check specs. Both have similar properties including anti drainback.
|The GFE 148 is what goes in the midget/Sprite maybe search for that.|
I ran Midgets 40 years ago and still remember the number.Must be doing something right.

|Jon, what's your engine number? Bud|
|My engine number is 4035, but when I got the car the PO had put and after market oil filter which w a large canister mounted on the tool box with two long copper pipes and it took a Sears and Roebuck filter. I changed out for an adaptor which mounts vertically facing down (older type) which I think I bought from Bob Grunea or AS looking at my old postings asking about the filter in 2003 I have an old empty white non branded box from what I think was my last stash of filters with the imprint on GFE 148 don't remember source and doesn't have a brand, but filter still on smallish white hangs vertically on the the ?? stainless convertor|
|Bob is a/k/a Bob Grunau <firstname.lastname@example.org> I'll bet he can tell you about the spin-on filter. Bud|
