Re: CJ2A Oil Filter??/

you probably already figured out where it is supposed to be. The oil filter (standing in front of the Jeep) is on the front left corner of the engine. If you remove the bolt on the top of the can, the filter lifts out with a cool little handle. On the firewall is the oilbath aircleaner, if you still have the beast. And if you know of anyone with air filter parts, I would be interested. I need the piece that goes on the top of the carb, and a new filter too. Hope the location info helps. I am in the middle of a CJ2A restoration. Parts everywhere!

Re: CJ2A Oil Filter??/

actually, yes, I did figure out where it did go, but the problem is that, I dont have the original filter hardwaer, and that is what I need to get.. I have some chrome can, that lifts up, and underneath it is a tube with a hole about 2.5 inches thick. It looks like the previous owner put a roll of toilet paper over the tube. then put the can back on, and had the toilet roll function as a filter.. we all know that would be useless after the first run.
Anyway, Anybody know where the original hardware can be ordered??? Thanks

If you are looking for quality pieces, Beachwoodcanvas.com can't be beat. Their prices are a little high, but the stuff is nice. I would also try willysoverland.com, they have some nice original stuff. I have an F-head that actually has been rigged to run a regular filter. I haven't looked at it that close, but I think they just plumbed in a filter mount from something like a small block chevy, at least that is what filter was mounted. I never looked at it real close, and it is at my Dad's place in Idaho now. I think the same filter assembly was also used on the F-heads, I have a 59' CJ5 that looks exactly the same. You shouldn't have that much trouble finding stock replacement parts. You can cross-reference the part numbers in the Beachwood Canvas online catalog and get a pretty good idea of what years the filter assembly was used. Here is a weird one for ya. My brother-in-law's father-in-law restores WWII Jeeps, and he disconnects the filters because he says they are prone to plugging and can oil-starve an engine. I don't agree with him, but I thought I would put out all the angles. As far as getting a filter hooked up, I bet you could run almost any remote mount filter system. It might take a little adapting, but nothing that a jeeper can't handle.

Don't discount toilet paper as an oil filter... it's been used that way since Noah came over on the Ark. Though I suspect he used corn cob oil filter... I don't know how well they worked, I suspect that they were pretty crappy.

For the real poop try lookin' you might remember that J.C. Whitney/Warshawsky marked a toilet paper oil filter. Ya got a spin-on can. It could be loaded with a fresh roll of tolet paper. If I remember correctly a copmany called "Revmaster" and even Franz marketed one as "the coming thing." It was everywhere! You couldn't go to an autoparts store without running into toilet paper filter systems. Funny though, they never sold toilet paper.

I may be stretching things a bit, bit I seem to remember even AMWAY was sellin' them...

Did they work? Yes, but you had to replace them frequently and make sure the input screens were free of any "paper residue" or you'd see the oil pressure start to drop. They were very, very popular with the VW and Mazda crowd.

Several calims against the manufactures were sought because of oil starvation and finally, as with all fads, these died a natural death.
