Thanks, Jason - I agree with both of those measurements.

It looks like the problem is not the tube, but the screen: my screen is "dished in" at the top, so there's not enough room for the filter:

It looks like the top of the screen has had the h3ll beat out of it. (Maybe related to a PO installing it upside down!)

It should be flat, or maybe "dished up" a little, shouldn't it? In it's present condition, there's a good 3/8" gap between the top of the screen and the screen cover.

I'm going to do a little "field modification" on it - nuthin' to lose.

And regarding the rope/rag stuff: I looked more carefully, and it didn't come out of one of the oil pan bolt holes, but a different hole on the right rear of the block, in the same area as the oil pan bolt holes. I probed it, and it's a couple of inches deep, and doesn't turn, as near as I can tell. I just going to shove the stuff back up there.

Finally, I successfully extracted the twisted-off oil pan bolt. (New bolts tomorrow!)

I would say if you straighten the top of it,it will be ok. I would lay it upside down on something flat and take a piece of wood and stick down inside and hit the wood until you have the top back flat again. I would also make sure the rubber grommet isn"t sticking up too much. I have seen a few filters that the grommet at the top seemed too thick and tall compared to the originals.

I forgot to add that you will have to pack that rope back in or you will have an oil leak. That rope is what seals the rear main cap to the block and doesn't let oil seep through the cracks. I have heard of people coating the rope with Indian head shellac to make it seal better. If you reuse that piece of rope it might not be a bad idea to coat it.
