Re: spin on filter adapter
The spin-on oil filter adapters for the N-tractors appeared on ebay a few years ago. Occasionally the adapters would appear on Amazon or one of the N-tractor specialty parts vendors will have them. In recent years a "cleaner" version appeared with the filter canister hanging down rather than sideways. My main concern with all of these adapters was that the engineering was done right, but they have been around long enough that if they were killing engines the news would be all over the forums. Just8ns now lists one of the adapters on their site. I believe if they are selling it they have verified the circulation/restriction is correct for the N-tractor engine.
Some people like to cut open used oil filters to look for possible engine problems. That's a lot harder to do with a spin-on type filter cartridge.
