55 Oil Canister Parts?

Post by Mel56 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:05 am

Looking for the oil canister parts to use on the 312 Y block. I have the can and the long bolt but I am looking for:
1) the plate that bolts to the engine block. (mounts underneath the canister).
2) the nut that bolts the plate to the engine block. (this nut is threaded on the inside so that long bolt connects to).
3) O ring and spring.

Numbers 1 & 2 are the important items I am looking for. When we purchased the 55 Bird it came with that conversion to a spin-on oil filter but, it leaks tremendously. I would like to try to go back to the original setup.

I have #'s 2 and 3. I have a # 1 but it's a heavy plate rather than a thin one that I thought was factory. Pic below. If you want these I will send you everything in the picture, minus the bolt and canister for 20.00 plus shipping. PM me with your address and I will figure shipping Thanks
