At least part of the problem is the ridiculous MoT and Tax exemptions. They should be ditched, and all vehicles treated the same. That would remove the motivation for a lot of this dross at a stroke.

Chris.

Or you go the European route and require the vehicle be as-built. No modifications. Our generous rules are open to pee-taking. On the continent it simply cannot be done. I'd rather have that than have to pay tax on a vehicle I only use every so often.  ???

           " Built on a shortened Range Rover chassis "

             Presumably a 1961  Range Rover chassis.
             Now there's a rare thing...

It certainly doesn't help that the internet, facebook especially, is awash with folks claiming "late IIAs had series 3 bulkheads and dashboards, there were crossover models/using up stock/blah black blah" who naturally refuse to relent when you point out that simply is not true. Muppetry or people deliberately trying to muddy the waters? *personally* I would not buy a "IIA" with a series 3 bulkhead, especially if the rest of it looked series 3 as well. It's a shame that lots of late IIAs and early series IIIs have lost their identities, as that way they lose their history.

That looks a lot like the Nova Offroad one, but the Reddit one looks to be a little bigger.

Yes this would work and once my small stock of filters runs out this seems what I will have to do but having talked to a member who did this and found access very hard and had to remove the wing, rad and lift the engine, and in his case split the engine from the gearbox. So I hope my filters will last until a clutch job or my demise.
If filters will last for 2 yearly oil changes it may be someone elses problem :-X

but I will keep a look out for filters just in case

As an alternative thought, Could you remove the adapter from the side of the engine and make a spacer plate for it from some 1/4" thick aluminium sheet? Couple of home made gaskets, longer bolts and screw it back into place.

You should then be able to fit the filters with the slightly larger diameter canister in place?

Not sure if that is possible. A photo of the adapter on the engine might help us.

Craig.

I suppose it depends on the diameter of the sealing ring, but how about something like this?

I'm sorry to say these filters do not have a  restrictions plate as required with this engine/filter kit :shakeinghead
