The filter I have has the wire bale handle. Does the handle go to the bottom or top? The parts drawing shows felt washer(s) that go on top of the filter under the spring. Are these necessary? I've never changed 1 of these and the original filter was missing along with all the piddly stuff. Can someone explain what I need to do?

Been a while since I've been in a 20 but do remember posting the order once in the archives, I had to cut somre rungs off an old bed spring until it held the "basket" flush against the oil pan. Make sure the pipe has the center hole clear. Install the spring and basket then the felt washer then tie it with wire so it doesn't fall down then install the pan, reach inside remove wire and install filter then the round cover with gasket

Ok, you just informed me there is something else missing. The "basket". Great. What do I do about that. Chances of finding a used one won't be very likely since it sounds like they damage easily. Looked in YT, Stieners and no new part available. I wonder how important it is if you change oil on a timely basis you won't have to worry about gobs or junk building up enuff to bother the filter. I'll have to think about this.

The basket is something similar in shape as the "pan" and is a screen mesh like a colander or strainer.I don't think its all that necessary.I've never found a big glob stuck between the screen.

Hi Don the handle goes to the bottom so it can easily be pulled out as far as the washers i would put them in.
