Can anyone recomend an oil filter kit, something fairly compact and neat to add to a BSA B33 Special, there is no tool box fitted, so it could sit in place of that (rigid frame)it would idealy be something available in the U.K.

Edit:...just found this - http://www.dcclassicmotorcycles.co.uk/parts/oil_filtration/filter1.htm this looks ideal, but any suggestions for something similar would be much appreciated bigt

Cheers
Steve

I like that oil filter you posted the link to and would be willing to try it. I use the oil filter that uses a longer cylinder and the Trident style cartridges.

There have been quite a few posts over the years on those type of filters and try and search and see if you can find pics of them and how they are mounted...mainly on the BSA and Triumph forums.

IM using a Magnefine inline filter on my B44.

This filter is designed for use on auto transmission units and incorporates a strong magnet as well as a paper element & bypass valve. Apparantly its capable of removing 99.997% of ferrous particles and the paper element removes any remaining debris.

See http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/INLINE-5-16-MA...=item3cb899ca31

I contacted the manufacturets and asked whether it would work on a bike oil return line. The answer was yes, it will work fine.

The filter is about 3 inches long(without the pipes) and 2 inches wide. It fits neatly into the return oil line and could easily be hidden behind a frame rail.

Seems like a bargain.

That Magnefine looks like an easy solution, easy to fit and hide. Don't know if I want to spend $18 for a filter at each oil change, though.
The MAP kit is also nice, but it's getting tough to find quality Trident filter elements.
There are external filter adapters available, sold by automotive race suppliers (Pegasis, Summit, etal.) Most are sold for external transmission filters, but can be used with standard car oil filters. I use one on my A65, a bit hard to hide on an OIF, though.
I prefer to be proud of the visible filter laugh.

[quote=gunner]IM using a Magnefine inline filter on my B44.

That looks like an easy option, although what I'm really looking for is something that can be visable but still look in keeping with a 1950's bike, so far I think the Unique Filtration looks about as close as I'm going to get.
Thanks again for the suggestion !
Cheers
Steve

Hi David, that looks a good kit and may be an option, but so far I think this (see link below) looks in keeping with the age of the bike (1952) and there is nowhere to hide it so the visual appearance has to be considered too.

Here's a custom made spin on unit I have fitted to the ski slope on my 54 B33.
It takes an element from a honda dirt bike

Looks a lot like the one I make:

I am making new tops with both ports horizontal for more mounting options.

Hi David

The original maker for BSA/NVT - CAW - is still manufacturing and aiui people like Richard Peckett (P&M) and Phil Bargh (L.P. Williams) stock them. If getting a small batch from GB is too much, have you tried pinning down someone like Mitch Klempf on what he stocks?

Otherwise, that Madigan feller looks fairly trustworthy ... grin (he last bought me beer several years ago).

Hth.

We recently supplied Mitch with 50 70-6571 CAW trident oil filters - so yes, Mitch has them.

That looks really good, shame your in the States, I fear P&P and duties may make it a bit expensive to buy this side of the pond

Thanks for posting, very interesting indeed !
