I recently purchased a 1958 Farmall Cub tractor in excellent condition and when I changed the oil I had an awful time getting the filter back on so it would not leak. Does anyone have any hints or recommendations on how to do that without wanting to end up pulling all your hair out???

A few things to remember next time you change the filter. Clean out the groove and make sure the old rubber ring is out of the groove. Wet the new rubber ring with some fresh oil before you place it in the groove. After you place the filter and metal canister back in place and have just started the center bolt, rotate the metal canister a bit to insure it is well placed in the groove. This should help next time, but it sure can make a mess if you don't have it on properly.
Been there Done that Good luck rjs

after failure about one hundred times I sacrificed originality and converted the Farmall Cub and two other antiques to spin on oil filters. The adapters I bought at a local auto supply and accept the same large filter as my Ford truck. Lots of luck!

ASSUMING YOU HAVE THE CORRECT FILTER, ONE PROBLEM WAS THAT THE PREVIOUS OWNER OVER-TIGHTENED THE COVER AND IT IS DISTORTED. BE SURE THE COPPER SEALING RING AROUN THE CENTER BOLT IS GOOD.

I don't know much about a cub oil filter but I would guess it is similar to my super A. I just purchased it about a month ago and had a similar situation changing the oil myself. Posted a note here and the concensus of opinion was that I hadn't cleaned the grove where the canister gasket goes well enough. I'm not sure this was the only problem but it was definitely one of them. I also think I left too much oil on the base when I put the new filter on. Next time I change the oil I am going to try a filter from Case ( I bought a cheap one) and hope the gasket is just a little bit thicker. I also think getting it on straight the first time is an aquired taste. Hope this helps and good luck next time.
