Default Ford Oil Filter Diameter Measurement Required.

I'm about to post up available Magnets for motor, transmission and diff available for the Ford range.

Whilst I have transmission and diff sorted (T56 and auto)

I don't know the size of the T5 and TKO 600 drain bungs?

I also need the 6 and 8 cylinder engine oil filter diameter sizes across the models and how many models these sizes fit.

Any help is much appreciated.

Cheers

Steve

As far as I know ...

Oil Filter Threads

Ford I6 and pre BA V8 3/4" thread 2 3/4" diameter (later ones 14 x 1.5mm)
Boss V8 22 x 1.5mm thread 2 3/4" diameter

Can't help with the trans ones though!

Cheers

O.K.
The AFL 1 MC (Genuine motorcraft) or Z9 equivilent is exactly 92mm is diameter. There is 95 mm of nice flat filter height and then there is a slight hex shape to the end or top of the filter that is about another 35mm. The overall height is 136mm or so. The AFL1 mc (or Z9) goes on ALL falcons 6 cyl from XP to BA II and old cle4vo's and windsors. And they do Toyota's and HEAPS of other cars. the list is endless. look at the Ryco website for a more detailed list of what they fit.

Then there is the AFL 73 MC. This is the BA BF XR8 filter. (probably heaps more that it fits but you may need to ring ford for more detailed fitments.)
This filter is The EXACT same diameter as the AFL 1. at 92 mm.
the overall height is 100mm with about 57mm of nice flat side.

Then there is the AFL 101. It goes on the BF 6 cyl falcon onwards. And it does things like the Escape and others. (ryco number z516)
It too is 92mm in Diameter and only 92mm in overall height. with 55mm of nice flat side.
the AFL 101 and AFL 73 MC are the same number in the Ryco book (z516) when you cross reference them, but for some reason ford have 2 different filters between them.

I'm a bit busy at the moment but I'll take some pics of each and chuck em up here for ya.
Hope thats what you needed.
Anthony.

Steve, I assume you'll be using the neo magnets. Will these be arranged to be a custom fit around the OEM filter, or will the buyer be resonsible for the fitment/ attachment?

thanks

Apologise to all about not getting back onto this, and thanks to all that helped. (russell and blownba I need to know if you have autos or manuals?)

I've been flat out this week (which is good) however, hasn't allowed me to put the time in here.

There are so many things I wish to share with AFF so I appreciate your patience.

I'm a FilterMag Distributor, these are what I use on the engine oil filters, where FilterMag don't have products (T56) I make them.

The Magnets used in all the products I supply are made by order, they are High Temperature (150C) Rare Earth Magnets that are made to a spec.

I have some on my new motor,(I put 2 on oil filters, this was all oil going into the engine passed over powerful magnets) I've asked for the filter to be removed and drained with the magnets on (being done now) so I can cut open, photograph and post what metal was removed from the oil on "run in", in a 700 kW engine with 850 klms on, should be interesting.

So much more to come, I just got to get onto it.

Cheers

Steve

Mate, don't worry about the magnets. I don't need anything to help out a fellow forums member, specially one who delivers such fine products and services as yourself.
I will however get onto you about oil flush in bulk. I am just about to run out of the 20L drum I have now.

I should of take some pics of the Dewoo I did last night. the oil light was comming on at temp. I had to remove the sump and oil pick up and actually dig the blockage out of the strainer, and then the pile of carbon rocks in the sump was totally amazing. And I had already run a flush and clean oil through it!!!!
The stuff we see on a daily basis, especially the Daewoo's and Hyundai's is mind blowing. And the customers always swear black and blue that they service their cars regularly.

What do you want to know about the TKO600 drain bungs? Mine is about due for an oil change.

If you have a chance to measure the diameter at each end of the thread (giving the size and confirming if it's a tapered bung) that would be helpful, thanks.

I must get back onto this and get these magnets posted up.

Spent a little time recently getting the Filtergram Wear Metal Analysis posted up however, doesn't appear many are interested in the technology.

Cheers

Steve

Thanks for that Hords

The RA300 looks like it will just sneak in and fit this one

Cheers
