SR3 Oil Filter
« on: August 26, 2008, 08:12:12 PM »
     I am in the process of preparing a Lister SR3 genset for operation and am hung up with a question involving the lubricating oil filter. I have drained the engine of oil and ordered a replacement filter (Part # 201-26020) fron Sommers. What I can not figure out is how to reinstall the filter cartridge in the filter cup.
     Unfortunately I am unable to included pictures to help explain the matter. The filter element drops into the black metal cup and the threaded bolt passes up through the hole in the center of the element. My question is this...what are the spring and the two washers for? The hole in the filter is far too wide to catch either washer or the spring.
     The part manual for the SR3 does not show the inside of the oil filter. Any help or guidance would be greatly and humbly appreciated. Thanks...Taras.
