Re: Need help with this mysterious old oil filter

Most marine engines have to be drained throught the dipstick hole.
On mine I run it until the oil is warm - about 20', tuen off and allow another 10' for the oil to return to the sump, then suck out all the oil.
Originally done with an oversize brass syringe, but I now use a Pela evacuator which sucks out the contents under vaccuum.
Only then should you attempt to unscrew the oil-filter cartridge - there are many different types, some you unscrew the whole cylinder and replace that, on some the internal cartridge is removable - mine is the latter and a Peugeot 205 filter cartridge fits - the official replacemnt is x3 that price.
My engine is a 3YM30 - on the original 2YM there was no disposable internal cartridge, and you had to clean the filter in petrol (or TVO).

Re: Need help with this mysterious old oil filter

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 filter.)

What do I do with this?

Thanks y'all[/QUOTE]

Re: Need help with this mysterious old oil filter

The fuel filter is a C A V 7111 296 The oil filter cartridge is inside the steel case visible ,put two plastic bags of reasonable size under and around the steel case,slowly unwind the center bolt let the oil run into the plastic bags ,do not snag the bags on removal .⛵️⚓️

This is an oil filter... a cartridge type. Detroit Diesel used these on their 4-71 6-71 and 6-53. Common filter...
