Rubber seal for oil filter adapter S1

Recommended Posts

Can somebody help me to find or has a part number for the rubber seal that goes on the back side of the oil filter adapter towards the engine on a '77 S1, see pic what I found on the net. It's a square in profil hydraulic seal, about 70mm outside 60mm inside diameter (about the diameter of the oilfilter seal).

 

Thanks for any leads!......:)

you could probably also use a round o-ring instead of flat.

 

hope this helps

Thanks Richard! I am not sure if the round ones will seal the 5mm square groove in the oil adapter, or if I have to go with 6mm then instead to make it tight. Would prefer the original square 5mm profil, that's the hard one to find.

Still looking....

SJ sell these but they are well hidden on their site. They are in the gasket section as I recall. If you cant find it, they probably would be able to advise on the phone.

When I acquired my current car, the whole of the RH engine mounting area was covered in oily gunk. Thats all it was, the rubber seal was leaking. Nice to have a quick fix once in a while!

I guess, if you buy yourself a new oil filter, the seal of the old filter, if in good shape , can be used.

No, its not the same size as the oil filter seal. I tried that.
