Does anybody know where I can get the rubber sealing ring for the series mm oil filter.

Usually come with the filter, might be worth getting another filter for the sealing ring. In the past I have left the old one in, I have never had a leak from there.

May be worth considering a spip on/off filter conversion.
I am pretty certain the filter head on the Massey Ferguson is suitable - see links below.

The bolts in that kit will be no good, though.

I've got a filter head on order for £10.80 to try.

Fits alright. Just need to sort out a short filter. Probably a 1275 Midget one will do.

One thing I've learned is to resist the temptation to spin the outer casing up tight against the seal, rather than using the bolt (which can fit quite tightly to the case). Spinning the case applies a shearing force to the big seal, and can easily tear or distort it. Result: a leak.
Incidentally I've found a safety pin the best tool for removing the old seal.
