   Hmm, I looked at the page, didn't see any filters listed for the 
hanging spin-on adapters.  In fact, Barney solicited input.

   So: I'm using the hanging spin-on filter adapter shown on the bottom 
of Barney's page.  The filter I'm using with this adapter is the NAPA 
Gold 1374, which should cross over to Wix 51374.  The NAPA Gold is a 
Wix, y'see.

   Moss used to sell this adapter, that's where I got mine years ago.  I 
had to buy a longer oil cooler hose to fit on this adapter because the 
hose port points to the rear.  I switched to this adapter because I had 
probs with the rods rattling on engine start after the car had been 
parked for more than a few days.  It didn't solve the problem. The oil 
is, apparently, still draining from the main gallery, I guess.
