HEAD FILTER PUROLATOR BYPASS TR2-3

Part No:
503895
Head only oil filter TR2-3 up to engine number 12649E; Bypass type. The bolt securing the filter bowl (sump) has a BSF Thread. Not available new use second hand parts 301994SH or 503895SH

Three types of oil filter head were fitted to TR2-4A. Many parts are not available now and some parts are not interchangeable, in particular the seal between the bowl (sump) and the filter head on a Purolator assembly is different to that found on a Tecalemit unit and if the wrong one is fitted, a severe oil leak could result. Fortunately replacement oil filters usually come with both seals!
TR2 and TR3 had what is known as a bypass filter head. This type did not have an internal blow off valve in addition to the pressure relief valve and operated on the principle that only a small amount of oil that was bypassed from the oil feed system was filtered. This was done to ensure the bearings were never starved of oil should the filter become blocked but did mean that dirty oil was inevitably fed to the bearings. This type of filter head is identified by only having one big hexagon nut visible on the head casting.
The TR3 to TR4 were fitted with a 'Full Flow' filter head by Purolator (Automotive) where all the oil is filtered. In the event that the filter becomes blocked there is an internal blow off valve that will allow oil to flow to the bearings. This type of filter head is identified by having one big hexagon nut visible on the head casting plus another sunken one.
TR4A's were fitted with the same Full Flow' filter head by Purolator or an alternative part by Tecalemit.
