I've a funny feeling that I used a 1098 filter in mine. I may be wrong, it's just that I don't think I've ever purchased a specifically MM one. Later today I'll look through the part numbers, unless someone else comes along with the answer before then.

WRT the screw-on, I saw those Tractor units and the advertised filter canister looked too long but there are shorter ones available. Did you get anywhere with those? Cheapest cast alloy filter head was about £11, with postage.

The Series MM uses the same oil filter as the 948/1098 engine

Thanks for that, Mike.

Out of interest, reading the Service Parts List for the MM...

918cc Purolator filter assembly uses part number 300509
918cc A.C.............................................. 30860
948.............................................. 8G684

...but it seems they are all interchangeable.

I have an oil cooler adaptor here that screws between the block and the oil filter head. Filters first then runs it through a cooler before entering the block. Engine used to be raced extensively in N.Z.

Is that an Aisan blower? We don't get to see them in Europe.

Sure is. Designated AMR 500 because it's displacement is 500 cc's per rev. Driven at 1.936:1 gives boost of 15.2 PSI (a bit over 1.0 bar). They are available on ebay or from the dealer in the states where I bought mine new.
