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.

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 <grunau.garage@sympatico.ca> I'll bet he can tell you about the spin-on filter. Bud
