Ford N-Series Oil Filter Adapter
A new adapter from Maple Springs Farm lets Ford N-Series owners use spin-on filters. The simple, no-tools filter change eliminates the hassle and mess of the original cartridge style oil filter found on Ford 8N/9N and 2N tractors. It also slashes filter cost and provides better filtration.
“Our adapter orients the filter vertically,” explains Eric Rego, Maple Springs Farm. “When a vertically-oriented filter is spun off, oil is retained in the filter, making for an almost mess-free change. By filling the new filter before installing it, it is primed, and oil pressure builds faster on start-up.”
Rego emphasizes that Ford N owners will be able to purchase filters with known efficiency. Many cartridge filter manufacturers do not publish efficiency data. Ford N’s use bypass filtration intended to slowly scrub the oil to remove fine wear particles. This makes a high level of efficiency very important. Modern, synthetic media, spin-on filters lend themselves well to a bypass system.
At $4 to $6 each, recommended spin-on filters are also significantly less expensive than the traditional cartridge filters. Depending on the source, they can cost from $8 to $16 each.
“The cost of the $39.98 adapter can be recouped just from savings over several oil changes,” says Rego. “Our adapter uses 3/4-in. 16 threads commonly used with spin-on automotive filters. This makes replacement filters readily available from virtually any auto parts store or big box store.”
