Spin On Oil Filter

Post by PoppyShan885 » Tue Oct 23, 2018 11:00 pm

Is there an adapter to convert an 885 to a spin on oil filter?

No, there is no adapter available. I cant see any reason for converting a working oil filter setup to anything else.

I can't agree, Ollek. I think it's a dog's breakfast, and a spin-on adaptor is a great idea.

I'm w/ you Lofty. If my tractor were a collector's piece, I'd want to keep it original. I use my tractor and any time savings in routine maintenance would be a plus.

I know there is such a thing for the Ferguson TO-35.

Look what I found. DB Parts list a spin-on filter for late 885. http://www.davidbrownparts.com/page69.html
So did they change the block or add an adaptor? My Nov 1976 Case 885 parts book still shows the old style.
I have sent an email to DBP for clarification.

It's a different block for the later models. You could have a engineer make an adapter plate but for something that gets changed probably less than once a year its not really a major

Ok, thanks. Today I bought the Bare-co listed spin-on filter (actually a Kubota equivalent :roll: ) and did a quick measure-up for an adaptor. It won't be easy with that filter. Might be better to find one more suited. Realistically, I have better things to do right now...

Forget the adopter for fitting a spin on engine oil filter to a 885. If you find it impossible to live with the original oil filter, get yourself a 1190 or a 1194 and you get a much younger tractor and the spin on filter is fitted as standard to these tractors.

I much prefer spin on filters as they are quicker and much more convenient. It's also impossible to put them together wrong which I have seen done with cartridge types.

But I can't see why anyone would go to any great lengths to fit one in place of an existing setup, just how often are you going to change it that the extra couple of minutes and mess will make a difference?
Even if you're doing a 1000 hours a year with the machine you'd still only need four filter changes, or if you did it every oil change (like I do) it'd only be eight. Most DB owners probably do it no more than once a year. I'd have to be doing a serious amount of hours to go to the trouble of changing it.

I can tell you why I would take the time to make an adaptor. It was a rainy nasty weekend, I have a heated workshop, machine tools and just wanted to get out of the house. I'm not trying to improve the DB 990, it was just fine leaving the factory, I just needed a project. Before the real machinist bust my chops, I'm just a hobby machinist, self taught and not that good a student. I looked at other adaptors and came up with this;

What an excellent piece of machining every DB owner with the old filters will want one, is it possible to use the same thread and therefore the same filters as later DBs or does it need larger diameter thread as it appears to be in the pictures. I use a longer Z9 type filter that is almost twice as long as usual DB filters they are common to Ford cars tractors even Case harvesters and DBs gives a lot more filtration area than the short standard ones.

If the filtering system is converted to a screw on type filter it is very important that the new filter has a bypass system that conforms to DB specifications.

Please explain for those of us (me!) who are less familiar w/ these type things. Always looking to learn!

Briefly- The canister type was a full flow system with a built in pressure relief mechanism that ensures that the engine is not starved of oil if the element becomes blocked.
Most screw on filters have this relief system built in, but not all. The relief system pressure should conform to DB specification of 10 PSI

Would that be the spring and assorted gubbins?
