Spin-On Oil Filter Adapter (292)

My spin-on oil filter adapter has started to leak around the edge. I'm not the one that originally installed it, so I'm not sure how it installs in order to remove it and reseal it. Does the center nut spin independently, or does the entire nut and plate spin? It seemed awful tight and I thought I'd better check before I tear something up.

the nut spins by itself.there as tight as hell.be careful not to strip the nut.there things are hard to stop leaking.tou will see the gasget when it comes of.wipe of all oil and put it on dry.sometimes its sprung and even when the nut is tight it doesnt hold.whatever you do dont use any silicone around it.

"put it on dry.sometimes its sprung and even when the nut is tight it doesnt hold.whatever you do dont use any silicone around it."

Thanks for the info, I've been having a terrible time getting it installed correctly. I actually tried silicone and it still leaked so I cleaned it again yesterday and am going to install it dry now. Hopefully I get it to hold.

The nut is very tight and because it is thin, it can be difficult to remove. If you look at the socket you use to remove it, you will notice a bevel on the inside. If you grind the socket on a belt sander, or carefully with a grinding wheel until that bevel is gone, it will "grip" the nut much better.

With regards to the leak, have a look at the following link:

I was just curious, my 223 and my 292 and several I had in the past have a spin on filter.
1. Were these a dealer installed option at some point?
2. Why weren't they installed from the factory, or when did they start installing them?

1952/64: Came with the "sock" by-pass cannister filter as standard equipment. Called a "sock" because the original cannister filters were wrapped with white meshed gauze material.

Many FoMoCo dealer 'lube men' replaced the by-pass sock filters with full flow 'Spin-On" filters. Changing a sock filter was a messy, time consuming operation.

1957: B7A-6882-A .. FoMoCo dealer installed "Spin-On" oil filter kit introduced.

1957: B7A-6731-A .. "Spin-On" oil filter introduced. Today, this filter is: Motorcraft FL-1A

Thank you. I still wonder why the factory continued to use cannister rather then the spin on

All 1958 and later FE engines came with the "Spin-On" filter as standard equipment. It's the same puppy.

1975: FoMoCo "shoehorned" 302 engines into Mustang II's (basically a Pinto w/different sheet metal ).

FL-1A was too long, so these cars came with the FL-300 Spin-On that is shorter.

Yes they had spin-ons on FE's but that's a whole different type of adapter. I'm just trying to find out why they didn't use them on Y blocks?

They did use them on Y blocks, but it was a dealer installed kit AFAIK

OK, I should have worded that differently.
Why didn't they put them on at the factory rather then making them just a dealer option? Doesn't make any sense to me.

When you figure what FoMoCo did and didn't do, and why, let me know. The idiots took over the asylum years ago.

And, who would know today? "The Deuce" and most of his compadres are as dead as Julius Caesar. Lee Iacocca is still alive, why don't you ask him.

Who knows and I guess I'll never find out. Maybe some relative had the contract to make canisters
