TO-20 oil filter question

Just purchased a 1951 TO-20. Just started going thru it, replacing fluids. When I got to the oil pan, I am stumped. There is a round plate to the rear of the oil pan with an oil plug off center. I removed the plug and oil came out just fine. BUT, the plate is welded to the oil pan. I thought this is where the filter is on the TO-20.
I was thinking this whole plate thing came down to expose the filter. Am I missing something?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

How timely, I just found this on a search having knocked mine loose and lost all the oil yesterday. My pan is bent enough that it does and always has leaked and drove me nuts. I was just dropping the pan to change the oil for quite a while now. Tell me, what is wrong with welding the leaking thing shut? It's been a while but it seems to me that even to change the filter dropping the pan will do the deed with no issues correct? Also what's the skinny on spin on adapter as I have wanted one for a long time and didn't think they existed for a 20.

Yeah that happens. I hate to admit it but about 50 years ago I welded that oil filter plate to the oil pan on our TO-20. It kept getting knocked loose and bent and we farmerized it. From then on we just changed the oil and not the filter until I bought it from my brother many years later. :o)

do you have any details about a remote spin-on filter? that would be a great solution.

Thanks for the input Kevin. The center hole is welded too. For now I just changed the oil. Guess I need to start saving up for the oil pan!
