Removing Oil Filter Base from Model G engine.

I need to remove the Oil Filter Base Assembly from the motor block to clean it. It appears to be a non ferrous metal and probably should not be put into the machine shop cleaning vat. How is it fastened to the engine block? What is the best way to remove it? Thanks.

The head bolts only hold the oil filter bracket on the engine, not the aluminum filter housing. Remove the filter housing by removing the clamp and line fittings.

Bill: Not exactly sure I understand what you are referring to about the oil filter bracket. I have two "G's" and they both have the spin on filters that screw onto the filter base. There is no bracket or anything attached to the head?? The filter base is a friction fit into the block. I maintain seven "G's" in our shop here on the farm and all of them that have filters are the same. Not all "G's" were equipped with filters. Maybe you have one that was not factory equipped and has an after market add on or maybe the "G" had more then one stile of filter. But all of the ones I have seen and worked on had the fiction fit filter base and they are removed by carefully prying them up and out or driving them out from inside the crankcase. I hope this helps.

We have a "G" and a Pony with the same engine, you are correct about the "G" oil filter. I described the oil filter bracket for the Pony and will use my "OLD AGE" as an excuse! :-( The head bolts broke off while removing the oil filter bracket on the Pony. Thanks for the correction.

It is mounted with head bolts through the head into the block. If you are not overhauling the engine, you might want to consider cleaning it mounted on the engine.

Today's Featured Article - Third Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. While I love straightening sheet metal, cleaning, and painting old tractors, I use every excuse to avoid working on the on the electrics. I find the whole process sheer mystery. I have picked up and attempted to read every auto and farm electrics book with no improvement in the situation. They all seem to start with a chapter entitled "Theory of Electricity". After a few paragraphs I usually close the book and go back to banging out dents. A good friend and I were recently discussing our tractor electrical systems when he stated "I figure it all comes back to applying Ohms Law". At this point ... [Read Article]
