I have a Vokes E37 oil filter (the kind used on the Grand Prix racers, RAF generators, etc) and would like to rebuild it. Anyone know if the element and seals are available? Thanks.

Here's a pic of the filter. Does anyone know if there is a modern filter that interchanges?

Looks similar to the filter on my 1971 T25T. Maybe the filter and seals from the later ones will work.

Element - FB994/1 or 99-1179
Sealing Washer - 99-1181
O'ring - 99-1182

The filter from the later B25/T25 is just a bit too long, the original was not mean't to be replaced but to be cleaned in petrol and reused. Of course they do need replacing eventually and I have managed to cram one of the later ones in by removing bits of it but would much prefer the proper filter. Vokes do not have it listed and emails are ignored but they did make some for the Daytona BSA rebuild done a few years ago so maybe Myles can give us some info.

Jon, Kommando- thanks for the replies. I acutally got one of the later B25/T25 filters when I got the E37, and realized it doesn't fit properly. I managed to soak and clean up the original element to the point not having any visible metal flecks, and bringing back the grey-felt color. If anyone needs that later B25/T25 filter element and seal, let me know and I'll drop it in the mail, as I have no use for it.

I would gladly pay shipping for that element and seal if you still have it.

Sorry Ger but it does not help but thanks for trying, emails sent to Vokes are unanswered and the filters are not listed anywhere.

Massey Ferguson tractors, shipped into the port of the place where I grew up had Vokes fuel filters.
May that lead you somewhere?
