1951 MG TD "Millicent Grace (Millie)"
I have an oil filter that moss supplied a few years ago that looks somewhat like the original TC-early-TD filter, but has a plug that screws into the bottom and a replaceable cartridge inside. (Moss 435-385) They don't make this anymore, but still supply the filter, although it is getting kind of pricey ($19). I am thinking about converting to a spin-on adapter, and thought I would ask the group for opinions on who makes the best one, mostly from the standpoint of functionality and fit (I would like to keep the original style hard lines, but not hard-over on this).

Hi Robert, I supply the spin-adapter for your MG. Uses original oil lines, banjo bolts and block mounting. Spin-on filters are available from any corner garage. Filter thread is 3/4"- 16 tpi so many filters fit. For reference, Fram PH3600 or 3614 work well. Cross reference to your favourite brand oil filter.
Adapter and PH3600 filter installed on a TC, same as a early TD.
I also supply the late TD/TF oil filter adapter for a modern spin-on filter.
For parts list and prices email me at grunau.garage@sympatico.ca or call 905-274-4136

I know you have heard from 2 manufacturers. I have one that looks like Roland's and it has worked great. I am in the process of restoring my TD and am going to go with the new can that looks just like the original, but hides a screw on filter under a cover. Best price is through From the Frame Up. About 1/2 what Moss is asking.

Which is simplest and cheapest for a TF 1250?

Hello Gary. A TF should have the late style pump with the filter can attached to the pump body. For that you would need the late style adapter, see the picture. If you are interested contact me off site at mgyowner@yahoo.com

I'm interested. I like the simplicity of it. But I've got to see some sign of ever getting my car back from the painter first!

[For a TF your adapter should look like the one in Roland's post, and for my money the best filter is the K&N,I believe #HP2009, available at pretty well any parts store.

As I said earlier, " I also supply the late TD/TF oil filter adapter for a modern spin-on filter.
For parts list and prices email me at
" grunau.garage@sympatico.ca " or call 905-274-4136 .

Also available new TC/TF alfin brake drums, TC tapered axle shafts and new wire wheel hubs etc etc.

I agree Fram may not be the best oil filter, but I reference it as it is a popular, and inexpensive brand to cross reference to your favourite brand. Yes, K&N is a good filter, HP2009
