oil filter canister

Fri May 16, 2014 3:23 pm

I am changing the oil on my FCub. I am also replacing the filter. I drained the filter canister, should I pour oil back in the canister before I start the tractor or just pour all of the oil into the crank case? The filter that came out was an IH filter! The IH logo was printed in black ink, I don't know how old that is! Thanks for the help.

Gregg, you can pour some in if you want, it will run back to the pan. Just make sure you prime it justy in case it lost it's prime.

Did you also remove the winged cap on the end of the drain pipe? Often there will be an accumulation of sludge in there.

Thanks guys, I will prime the oil pump. I have read about it before, seemed simple, I just don't remember what I read. Lol. I removed the the winged cap and ran some bailing wire in it, it seemed pretty clean. Thanks for the help guys!

To prime it use an oil can to pump some oil into the small hole inside the filter housing opposite the filter. Then spin it with the starter a few rounds until oil starts squirting back out the same hole. Then put the filter cover on and fire it up. Of course all that is after adding oil to the crank case.
