  • Davis 100 Loader Hydraulic filter Issue.
  • I have a 1954 Ford NAA with a davis 100 loader. Recently had issues with a broken bolt on vickers pump so had to remove all Hyd.. from front of tractor to fix. upon cleaning, painting etc I went to get a new Hydraulic filter (Original M-F part #1752177m1) at NAPA. well they no longer make , but they were kind enought to tell me that a Local baldwin filter dealer had the replacement(P40). Here is my problem/question; in cleaning the filter tank assembly I see that there are four larger holes in a larger shoulder in the back of the tank beyond the old sock filter mount tube and the new paper filter. Logic tells me the pump will suck unfiltered oil throught those hole before sucking through filter. It would seem that the/a filter to do its job should cover those holes too. Is there a better filter to use and How does one find a replacement screen. Great web site. Thanks for any help.

  • Did you ever figure this out? I too have a Davis 100 and curious to what filter works best when I need to replace it.

  • Davis Loader Filter solution: I was informed by a salesman at a place called Motion Industries that Wix made a Spin on Hydraulic filter base. He gave me a copy of a web shot from a auto parts house. Upon investigation the one he showed me wouldn't work so I decided to google search "wix oil filter conversion kit" and up popped a link to wixs' website with their filter conversion kits:.

    I went to the site and looked at the different kits starting with 24001 and looked at the specs. My vickers pump has a 1" inlet so I decided to go with #24001 1" spin on base. They also listed the hydraulic filter(16 gal capacity) for the spin on base.

    I then searched the internet for the base and found them at o'reillys and NAPA. O's would take a day to get one in and NAPA had the base (Their number 4001) and the wix filter #51453 (NAPA #1453) in stock and since I told them it was for the farm I got a steep discount from the original price; same with the filter.

    I then went to the hardware store and got a variety of 1" pipe fitttings as I wasn't sure just how it would all go together since my loader has a heavy duty log guard in front and over the pump. Well come to find out all I needed was the 1" close fitting, another 1" close and 90 and a 3" piece of pipe I cut threads off to fit the Inlet hydraulic tank hose.

    Caution: you can use regular pipe dope on the pump side of the 1" close, but you need to use hardening gasket sealer on the adapter side so the adapter stays at the right angle to fit your space and keep from breaking the adapter casting (experienced that) (mine is at a 45 downward to the rear from the pump inlet). Pipe dope used on the hydraulic tank inlet side of adapter fittings (pipe only, so no dope in pump). All together about $55 including the filter to convert to spin on. (I also replaced rubber hose from Hyd tank to adapter inlet pipe).
