Early CJ3A oil filters
« on: October 21, 2018, 01:23:17 AM »
So, I ordered a oil filter from Kaiser  Willys that was supposed to fit a 3A.  The filter was OK, the right height, but the gasket that came with it was too small, about 4 1/4� and I needed one that was about 4 5/8�.  Seems that up to engine #40352 Willys used a Purolater canister (A-1230) and after that changed to a smaller diameter Purolater or Fram.  It looks like the canister is the same as the Military Junior, with the 4 piece straps spaced close together.  The only marking on the cover is P713.  According to Bob W�s book that would make it about October 1949 for the change.  What do you think Bob?  Here is a photo, yeah it is supposed to be black but I liked the orange ;).

My 1950 CJ3A has the filter with no straps and It takes the 4 1/4" gasket.
People think I go out of my way to * them off.
Trust me, It's not out of my way at all.

Yeah, I am pretty sure that is the Fram filter.  The book lists four different filters.  The CJ3A parts book illustration shows yours and mine.
