I helped a friend change fluids on his 65 3000 the other day and ran into a problem he said he's had every time he changes oil. Can't seem to get a good seal where canister meets the block. Both mating surfaces were clean and looked to be in good shape. We tried the new gasket, the old gasket and finally both gaskets and that worked the best. I've got 2 thousand series tractors but they both have spin on filters and was wondering if putting on a spin on adaptor would take care of his problems. Anybody ever have any luck with these type adaptors... Thanks Dan

The only problem could be, if you were ever in the woods and the front wheel kicks up a limb and it hits the thin wall oil filter,

It could knock a hole in the filter and you lose your oil,

New Toyota cars and trucks have gone back to canister oil filter covers, why I do not really know, looks to me like it would take longer to change the oil and get it to seal,

So far as long as my canister will work I think I am going to stick with it, has worked 55+ years,

If it ain't broke,don't fixed it...I agree 100%. This one is problematic so I think it's time for out with the old and in with the new.

I've converted both my 640 and 3000 to spin on filters. Easy to write the date and hours on the filter with a Sharpie when it's changed so it won't get away from me.

I had that problem with a canister filter. If I remember correctly I put it back together with it just touching then twisted it slightly as I snugged it. When it was right it didn't need to be really tight.

I have put an adapter on one of my fergusons and I like it. have also had to use two gaskets with the canister type.

I've had the same problem with those canister filters. Don't like them. A couple tractors I've owned had the adapter when I bought them, and I added adapters to a couple others. Worth doing, in my opinion.

Thanks guys...I think I'll suggest he do the change over. It's got to be less aggravating and he'll probably save money in the long run...ever had any problems with the adapter plate sealing? Did you use any silicon goop or other gasket maker, or just the supplied rubber gasket? What about the spin on filter number, is it the same as the ones on the newer 3000'?

Lay the canister on a flat surface and use a strong flashlight. Usually they are bowed ever so slightly out of round if the leak, assuming gasket went on good and all was clean

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
