Jersey: I was at my 'dirty shop' today and I remembered to look for an oil filter canister. I do have an original one that is 'extra' for me. I've had this too long to recall where I got it.. It needs beadblasting, cleaning and painting, and I could not find the 'bolt' for the top. I may or may not have that; I'll have to look again. Let me know if you might be interested.

PS. When these were installed AT the factory, they were painted 'black' (with a white text instruction label). The Orange/blue ones were purchased OTC at the local chevy dealer for post factory install...

appreciate you digging that out ...I am very interested hope you can look/find the bolt for the lid.. couple questions if you know the answers where does that bolt up to ? ...looks like the thermostat neck ? I guess more important were they different applications 6 vs. 8 . I was abble to take the original owner out for a ride in the neighborhood today made mine and his day. I have a picture but the site is not letting me post says my file is invalid....Bob the OO put a aftermarket filter on himself after he purchased the car he bought it from Sears the hoses are bad and I like to have OE if i can even thow the story of Bob installing is a classic ...I am blessed to have purchased this car from him. Spent some time with him today helping trim some huge Oaks in his yard ill try to post here...nopw won’t let me ....well anyway i can blast and I do small parts powder coating myself if its not pitted to bad or epoxy prime and paint

10122 Bama I took the picture with the phone long ways and the lense at the top then I emailed to myself ( which I guess resized it added it back to my photos chose it and uploaded.... lot of moves but here is what Bob installed back in 55. the hoses the supply line comes out of the intake( see the brass plug I put in the manifold) and the return is in the block above the timing cover I am assuming those are factory taps ? also I assume the hard line Eklers sells will attach to that canister you have bottom and side and plump to those locations. I know I asked if you know or have any memory of where it will attach is it to the first 2 bolts on the intake drivers side ? not the thermostat housing ..
thanks
Jersey :)
Ps wonder if the bolt in the top of mine will fit yours?

Jersey boy, I assume you're the driver of those two teens riding in the car in your photo? :)

Yes, the oil filter bolts under the thermostat housing. The 6-cyl oil filter (for '55 and other years for the six) clamps to the manifold (ie. totally different). There are two steel (or copper?) lines to connect into the oil system. You should be able to see the oil line connectors in the photos of the oil filter, one from the bottom of the filter and one from the side. I'll look for the top bolt for this filter, but if I can't find it I may have another extra which is complete. I'll look for that one also.

Chevynut
very much appreciate you finding these items for me I saw the one on ebay for 165. or best offer + 99.00 shipping ( anybody thats been at this a while knows what a usps flatrate box costs ) that prompted me to post here to see if a board member had one to sell more reasonable and of coarse the support with in this community which I am finding refreshing. I rather pay a board member something reasonable and do the same if i can recipicate.
thank you again,

Jersey Body: I stopped at my shop today and found *another* 1955 Oil Filter, complete wtih the lines. In cleaning it, I broke one of the lines (but the lines themselves probably should be replaced anyway). This was grease covered, and when I opened it up, it still had an oil filter and some oil in it... yuk~ I spent an hour or two cleaning it up. It still has some of the orange/blue paint on it meaning it was an OTC purchase rather than 'factory installed' - but painting it black makes it into a 'factory installed unit'. Given your car is unrestored, this one might be perfect for your car as it is... ? :) I'll send you some photos tomorrow...

I soaked the rusty oil filter in evaporust overnight, and it came out nice... ready to prime/paint to your desires. I also cleaned up and out (removing old filter and ugh oil) the second OIl Filter assembly I found in my shop. There a separate photo of the bolt (and spring) which was missing from the first one and which I haven't found (and may not have). I will sell you either one, in whatever form you want it, with or without the bolt spring~ :)

The one that I didn't have the bolt/spring for was originally 'black' (from the paint residue) meaning factory installed; the other has orange/blue residue meaning it was an over the counter part purchased/installed after the dealership received the car it was installed on.

Since I broke one of the oil lines cleaning the second one, I went by a parts store this morning and purchased two new oil lines after measuring the originals.

Jess,

Hold off on ordering the filter that CN suggested until you verify. I do not believe the 131 he referenced is correct for the '55 accessory filter housing. I think that one is used with the integrated '56-57 filter assembly.

The '55 accessory housing used a shorter fatter filter such as the NAPA1100 filter. https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/FIL1100

It may be rusted when you get back after a few weeks, the evaporust doesn't offer any rust protection, so some of those hard to reach areas might need some more evaporust to clean them up again.

thanks LEE T.. I have sprayed it with a pruduct called After Blast from Eastwood that ussually buys me some time between applying a finish. When I return we shall see the results. I will either dip it again or beed blast prep it and get it in the oven .....Here is a question for all GLOSS black or SATIN ?
