1. I have a TO-20, and I have had the same problem trying to locate the correct oil filter.
The WIX 51107 should be the correct oil filter for the TO-20, but my local auto parts store doesn't have the 51107 in the WIX book any more. (I believe the 1107 is the NAPA version, but it's made by WIX.)
Instead, they list the WIX 51010 for BOTH the TO-20 AND the TO-30, which, as you noted in the manual, should not be correct: the TO-20 requires an "inside-to-outside" filter, and the TO-30 is "outside-to-inside".
As far as I can tell, none of the filters that cross-reference to the WIX 51107, the "correct" oil filter for the TO-20, is made any more.
Here's an excerpt from an e-mail message I received from a VERY popular online seller of parts for vintage tractors, regarding the "oil flow" issue:
Upon further research, of the few major manufacturers of filters, it
has come to light that the filters are now being made that direction
of the flow is indifferent.
Verified with Tisco (they have been selling parts for 75 years) they
now supply these for both as the same filter. Technology has made a difference in 60 years.
You can take that for what it's worth.
Many sellers are listing the Baldwin P40 as the correct filter for the TO-20.
I have both the Baldwin P40 and the WIX 51010, and while the overall dimensions are the same, the ends of the two filters are completely different: the WIX is solid metal, and the Baldwin has a raised rubber washer, that looks like it would seal better than the WIX.
I can't help with questions 2 and 3, because, quite honestly, I haven't changed my oil and filter yet, because I was afraid I'd run into precisely the kind of problem you described! :cry:
Regarding the screen, canister, etc., you might want to check the archives, as this has been discussed previously. Jason and John (UK), among others, have lots of experience.

|Thank you much for the info. I will try the #s you gave at some Parts dealers. |
Im new to posts & forums, but this sure did help. The fella before you showed a schematic photo. Seems I put everything back the way it came out.Besides the incorrect filter, I now know I should double check there is no missing spring. (Still do not understand why the inner "round metal housing?" is loose, with the 2 little clip like pieces I found. I would think this inner metal casing would be firmly mounted. "Its not made to come out.)
I did get the filter I used at NAPA, a WIX 1107. Same height,Not close on O.D. but to attempt to simmplify in text, it was a basic canister type shape, also very different material, even though it was what NAPA said was the catalog match. (I think that was the Part# NAPA used from WIX).
Main concern about this filter, is its design."The original WIX I Pulled out. Yes the height of the filter is identical to what I got at NAPA, however. Best way I can describe in text, Original Metal housing filters inner opening is resesed down over an inch X mabe 1-1/2" wide on both sides, top &Bottom. I would think there is an important reason for the design.
(Im not good with words.)
In the event it may help someone else. I started this filter search at Tractor Supply. They went to the Fram site online, & that site showed the Identicle Photo of the filter I need. It is Fram C153. Went back today, but now says they need Their OWN Part #.)
Again. Thanks a million for your time. (I will attempt to try to load a photo of the original WIX filter.Not great with PCs.
Best regards, Jerry
