Oil filter adapter

Post  SAMK3 on Wed Feb 19, 2014 10:30 pm

Hi all,
Seems my oil filter canister cover is dented, holed and in need of replacement. Any thoughts on converting to a spin on filter? I assume the benefit is that the spin on filters are easier to change and less prone to leakage?

Is there a preferred adapter? I see Minispares / Minimania (USA) has one. But I've seen a different adapter sold by Moss. Anyone have experience with these products?
Suggestions appreciated!

Hi Mark,

I got the Minisport version for my car, simply for ease of filter changes etc. From what I've seen, it looks to be a straight swap over between the two.

Changed my 1965 Morris Cooper to a Minisport adaptor in 2012.
Functions just fine ("does what it says on the tin")

As usual, MiniMania is WAY overpriced. Buy it from MiniSport-USA for 12 bucks and change. This is the one that I had on my 998 to replace the old canister one. Worked great.
