Re: CJ2A Oil Filter??/
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.
