Hi toddy and welcome.

It should be the cartridge type oil filter that fits inside a metal canister on the front of the engine, part number GFE103. It might have been replaced with a later type, either a different sized cartridge one or a spin-on type. The spin on ones are usually painted a different colour and have their brand name printed on them.

Not knowing where you are, its a bit difficult to be too precise about where to get one, but any classic mini spare parts place will have either type and should be able to help you select the right one.

If it's the paper type one don't forget the rubber washer round the top !!

Thats right Nigel or we get oil all over the garage floor or worse still down the road somehere!....Thats why I recommend the well named "spin on" type sprayed MOWOG green, and much easier for regular maintenance ...

Have you ever had one jam on? I got one stuck once, it took hours to get it off. It ended up all torn open and still wouldn't shift. I had to take the whole head off and stick it in a vice. What a drama.

Yes they jam on every time, must get around to buying one of those removal tools that strap around the cannister instead of hammering a screwdriver into it like I usually do :shock:

Why do they weld themselves on ? Seems to me that even though I screw it on finger tight it's still joined at a molecular level come time to remove it

A few oil changes ago I found a socket attachment at the local autoparts store that fits the "fingergrips" perfectly. I load in in from the top and can just get an extension on my ratchet to engage. Makes getting the filter started off a piece of cake..... The mess I make wrestling the full filter past the generator more than makes up for it. :roll:
Non removable grill and a factory sump guard makes things a bit awkward in there....
