I got the oil changed in a ferguson TO20 with the oil filter internal to the pan. I couldn't figure out how the filter comes out. I unscrewed the bolt that dropped the big plate at the bottom of the oil pan. I couldn't get the long bolt to come out so the filter could be removed. Not able to seperate the filter and plate. Is this a life time filter to clean out and put back in or am I not seeing something.

I have seen many posts along these lines where it sounds like the prev. owner did not have the oil filter and strainer installed correctly and the "new" has trouble figuring out what is going on in there. My TO had the oil strainer in unside down and it would not come out of the oil pan, I had to drop the oil pan to change the filter and correct the problem. That center bolt threads up into the oil drop tube that is coming down from the center main bearing. You should have both a #1107 paper filter cartridge, and a wire mesh strainer around the outside of the paper filter, and a steel can cover that stays up in the crankcase, the filter and screen push up into the cover. Sounds complicated, but once you see the right way to install, it is a simple design. Not sure what exactly the problem is with your case, maybe the threads are stripped and the bolt won't back out, try prying down on the lid while loosening the bolt. If all else fails, you can cut the bolt and replace it, or drop the oil pan.

Deffently not a lifetime filter. It is a WIC #1107 available at NAPA. Center bolt should come out and the assembly drop out the bottom.

I could be wrong here but it sounds like he got the bolt that holds the bottom plate off and is trying to remove the tube. You probably shouldn't try that without having the pan off. The tube (that the bottom bolt screws into) does not normally come out. If I were you I would drop the pan just to make sure you don't do some damage that will be hard to correct. Best Regards Jack

I agree. It should all pull out the bottom. There is an external screen around the filter (sometimes this is gone.)

I did remove the plate, bolt, and filter. They all three came down and out. But I cant get the three to seperate from each other. There are thread's on the top end with a washer that is part of the bolt that holds the filter in place and on the other end is the bolt head. I can't get the filter out of the metalcover around the filter. What to do? How should these three come apart?
