42 Peep here!

Does anyone recognize this oil filter? I know it is not a G503 item from WWII, but some say it could be a CJ2A model (or even off an M38, although I doubt that). Others have said it is not from a CJ2A, but could be from a 3A/B?

 

I can't get the link to work right now, sorry

Nope it won't work.

 

We'll do this the old fashioned way.. it's orange with a black top.

looks like a 2a later style, 48-49ish, filter canister from the G.503

Thanks! The different color lid threw me off; it doesn't seem like a lot of the postwar info is as well documented as the WWII stuff,  but then again in WWII they used one color which made it simple. :lol:

my bad it should say the link is from the G.503 forum....the mounting wings on the canister are a give away for later CJ use...still good to have just in case and I think the filter element is a different PN also...larger too?

Hi, thanks, I knew what you meant about the 'gee' (a great site for WWII jeep info!). Yes I ended up needing a filter housing on very short notice, and since that was clean inside I used it even though it isn't a G503 model. I ended up finding a filter element at NAPA (and kept the box for that, so I would have their part number handy). Eventually it's going to be changed out for the correct housing, but it's doing fine so far. Just not pretty or correct looking :lol: I did think it was cool that the decals were still there. 

 

There is nothing quite like the sound of a running L134 engine! B)  Thanks again
