Oil Filters, Fuel Filters, etc

Post by Dave_Pa »

I need some help with the 'general maintenance stuff'.

I see that there is an oil sticky which is great, but wondered if we could start a list of items, like oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, etc and where is a good place to buy them and which ones are kind of junk.

Thanks,
Dave

Hey Steve.
I did see there is a whole write up on the wiki for oil filters. other than that i don't know.
I'd be glad to help, but i'm still so greed w/the roadster, that i'd be fearful of giving bad data.
Or maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing. maybe someone who's more seasoned could chime in and put me/us on the straight and narrow.

Oil Filters: http://311s.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f= ... er#p138001
Wix 51512 is readily available locally for me.

You can still get the filter elements for the glass bowl fuel filter and the SU air cleaner from a Nissan dealer if you have one local, but it takes a few days for them to order and receive them.

I usually just look here for part numbers:

Doh, I knew about the oil filter info in the wiki. Not that big of a choice for the fuel filters. I suppose part numbers would be good. I generally use the aftermarket glass ones with the replaceable filter available from many of the chain auto parts stores. I will be keeping the 67.5 stock so I need to hunt for a good useable replacement glass bowl as it is busted. Thanks.

Added a new section to the Tech Wiki called Fuel-Carbs and moved all the fuel-carb related info from the engine section to the new section. Also put the Mikuni manual in there as well as the glass fuel filter info. Thanks.
