Oil Filters

Hi All

I've got a couple of A65's in the latter stages of redemption and intend to fit oil filters.

Would be pleased to have your thoughts an any other input on the subject.

Hi Mike you seem to know a lot on A65s was the original filter not up to it, would other types of filters restrict flow, just a thought, Roy

Thanks for your kind comment-----I wish!!!!

Only original filter is a single "gauze" sheet in bottom of the motor.

I use these on all my bikes , b34 , b44 , ariel sq 4 and matchless g9 . https://www.morgo.co.uk/product-category/morgo-oil-filter-kit/ . You configure what kit you want and they send you the fittings you request for the kit price . All the filters are the same . I have not had a problem with any of them .

I've bought several of these and have been totally chuffed with them - fitted to the return side on my B44's - great value and easy to fit.

Thank you gents.

That's what I was hoping to hear to confirm that I was about to do the right thing.

I would always fit a screw on car type filter to the return side. I am fitting an RGM one from a Norton Commando to my Royal Star. Same as most of the other Wassell types, uses the Mahle OC5 filter, available at all motor factors, except it has a clever extra bracket that you use to grip a Jubilee Clip around the filter to stop it unscrewing. I don't think that's vital on a BSA but Norton Commandos would probably shake it loose will all the low res vibes t'other side of the Isolastics.
The RGM one is a lot more expensive than the Wassell types but not when you pick one up, complete with clean canister for a tenner from the Autojumble box in front of the counter at Feked!
