Is it connected to the fuel
system or oil lines
Open it up and have a look and see what element is in it a filter supply shop should be able to match it
Years ago a company made filters like that which used a toilet roll as a filter
QUOTE=amathlai;3444137]Hi friends, I'm trying to find my way around this 60 year old sailboat I bought.
She's allegedly got a Peugeot Indenor DTP 40, but I haven't found anything on the engine
itself to verify that. I've been able to find my way around the motor
through the help of various manuals
for DTP 40 and other similar engines, but none of the resources I've found have explained what I'm supposed to do to change the oil filter for my engine:
The attached photo
is what I assume to be the oil filter, it's located where the manuals
tell me to expect the oil filter to be. I thought I'd be able to look at the filter and buy a replacement canister based on what the old one said on the outside. Instead, I found this generic case with a big bolt on top (and a wire connected to it?). Can I hope that if I open 'er up, there'll be a filter inside that I can easily find a replacement for? Should I toss this housing and replace it with a filter like what everyone else has?
Is this even the oil filter? (There's definitely a diesel
filter elsewhere in the system so I'd be surprised if this is a diesel
What do I do with this?
