Beezers,
I ordered an oil filter for my 71 T-bolt and find the instructions for installation to be mysterious. Mysterious mainly because, if I understand them, it won't fit. Can any of you offer some mounting suggestions? I am leaning toward mounting the braket to to the right side fender mounting bolt near the bottom of the OIF oil tank. I saw a post where someone had mounted one on the swing arm but can't find it to look at the pictues. Any help?

I had the same problem with their directions. The only way I could get the filter to mount where the directions said was to have a stand off bracket made that mounts on the top rear motor mount bolt motor side, and i had it made with a healthy hunk of metal so it would not break due to vibration. To change the filter, all I have to do is take the air box cover off as though you were changing the air filter. Also I seem them mounted parallel to the ground using the rt rear passenger's peg mount. But I think changign the filter would be messy. Below is a pix.

MAP sells a lot of those filters. I looked at them and for the same reason you guys mention, I went with the HD canister that neatly mounts to the rear of the engine mounts, is easy to replace with no mess, and uses replacement filters from the local auto parts stores. If interested send me a private e-mail and I'll send you a writeup and a pic. The kit is about $45 and the replacements $6-$8.

Mike, you can't mount a canister filter there on OIF bikes. ITC, the MAP filter is much neater, particularly the way that Jerry has done it.

The MAP kit is aimed at the Tr*umph wet frame bikes. It is a bit different to mount on the BSA vs the Tr*umph installation.

I do like Jerry's solution.

umjwh,
Thanks for the suggestion, especially the pic, nothing like a picture to aid clarity. I will probably create a similar mounting but I may use the fender mounting bolt instead. The rear engine mounting bolt on my bike is inserted reverse to yours making removal more complicated. Any vibration issues if I use that securement? I like your mounting because the filter is parallel with the vertical frame member, making it less obtrusive to the appearance of the bike.

That stand off bracket I made is made of metal stock the same thickness as the swing arm thru bolt tab welded onto the frame.
It might of been an overkill, but after 4k miles of riding it's still rock solid.

I stand corrected. I thought we were talking about a non OIF bike. I now see it is a 71 model A65. What I said does apply for OIF unit singles and pre OIF A series.

Sorry, my mistake.

Greg, I didn't mean that you can't mount a canister filter on an OIF at all...just that you can't hang it off the motor mounts like on a dry frame.

heres how I mounted mine.


I used the bracket from MAP, but it would not work on the rear fender/engine mount. Instead I had to pull the rear engine mount bracket off, drilled a hole about an inch in front of the fender/engine mount hole, and back welded a 3/8 stud to bolt the bracket on.
