Spin On Oil Filter Conversion Kit | Classic Mini Sprite & MG Midget

Spin On Oil Filter Conversion Kit | Classic Mini Sprite & MG Midget
Part No: MMKT0038
Specially Priced. Discounts Do Not Apply.
Fits the following:
Classic Mini
Sprite & MG Midget
Morris Minor
The old canister type oil filters are not only passe, but a real pain. Modern spin-on filters are readily available, easier to change and provide much better filtering; spin-ons are available with super micron filtration and even built in magnetic traps. The conversion from the old canister type to the modern spin-on is a simple matter of removing two studs, replacing the filter head and securing it all with two short bolts.

Our kit includes all the pieces;
TAM2097=Filter Head
Oil Filter
(2) BOLT01=Adapter Bolts
GFE148=Spin On Oil Filter
FITS Minis and 1275 converted Minors and Sprite and Midget.

Does not fit on automatics

Note: If your older canister system had a low oil pressure switch connected, that circuit is no longer used. These heads have a ball bearing bypass valve that eliminates the need for that warning system.

Yes, perfect fit.

Hi, Will MMKT0038 fit an A-series 948 engine?

Yes, it will fit the 948 engine. You'll need to replace the rigid pipe to the block though as the rigid pipe adapter for the canister oil filters was different from the one that fits the spin on heads.

This should be the braided line you need:  https://www.minimania.com/part/TAM2106BRAIDED/Braided-Line-Hose-Pipe-From-Block-To-Top-Of-Oil-Filter

The cheaper option is to get a used rigid pipe and spin-on head kit: https://www.minimania.com/part/MMKT2123/Pre-owned-Spin-On-Oil-Filter-Kit---Minis-Sprite--Midget--Morris-Minor

That kit is plug and play.
