throw the stick away. you need a tube. several on this page have made their own out of a piece os tubing. i cant remember the exact dimensions, but in general you need a tube about 4 inches long. make sure it is short enough that it does not stick up and poke a hole in the top of the filter. the diameter is about a 1/4 inch, but you need to measure the hole in the housing it presses into and make if fit that. only push in about 3/8 of a inch . if you push it in too far it will cut off the oil port. the tube is soldered shut on the end and then drill a hole about 1/16 inch in diameter in the top and another about 1/2 inch down on the side, horizontal. You might also be able to call Norm or Sandy Lake and buy one. Dont know if it is aftermarket part or not. Like i said, most of the machinist guys around make their own.

found this in the archive from last year.----
the tube is 1/4 inch diameter (.250 inch) and 4-1/4 inch long. It presses into the housing 1/2 inch so you have 3-3/4 sticking out into the filter. There is a hole in the tube that is 7/64 diameter (.110 inch) on the top and a cross hole 1/4 inch down from the top, same diameter.
About 15% of the oil goes thru the filter and flows back to the motor crankcase. The rest goes to the bearings and top end valves. Unlike a car that filters all the oil prior to use.
After installing the tube, if you still dont have pressure, squirt oil down the steel tube going to the pump. That should reprime the pump. Sometimes they loose prime if oil is changed or they set for a long time

Several other tractors use that filter too. I know some Oliver tractors do. And I just changed the filter on the 4-cylinder Wisconsin engine used on our emergency communications generator. It uses the same filter, though I don't know if that tube is different at the bottom from one make to another. I know they used that same filter up throught the WD45.. and probably into the D series. You might look in a tractor boneyard and find that tube.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
