I read a post a week ago listing all the filters the 8N liked! Said C3 or C3P . I bought a C3, for 1/2 the pice of the C3P , but it is 1/2 the size (shorter),
Was that post a mistake, or is it ok to use the shorter C3? It didn`t come w/gasket, but I change frequently & know I have a good gasket . THANKS

If the box with your c3 in it had a filter that was shorter than the c3p.. someone swapped filters.

The c3 and c3p are virtually identical in size.. though as you noticed.. the c3 is about 4$ & has no gasket, whereas the c3p is about 8$ and has a gasket. Also.. the c3-p has lots more filter media in it... And looks better constructed. I.e., it has a filter paper over cover.. etc..

If I were doing an oil change on a machine that was going to need another oil change one that had been setting, and had lots of MMO in the oil helpin ghte valves and rings seat.. or if I was doing the first oil change after a blown head gasket.. etc. I would use the cheaper one.. as it was only going to be a 'few hour filter'

For the filter that I ran for 50 or 100 hours.. I would go with more media.

C3P it IS. While I got ya, I filled the steer box w/80-90 & noticed the oil leaking all over the side (left) . looks like the sector arms are leaking. Fo4 manual shows a couple seals. are they still avail, & can I just change em? Looks like I can

Doesn't the steering sectors on the 9/2n get splash oiled from the tranny? I think there are drain holes back into the tranny

AFAIK they do.. but both the 8n boxes are sealed and must be lubed..
