My former British car with the French engine had a horizontal spin-on filter.
When the oil pump would lose prime, it was a simple matter to spin off the oil
filter and use an oil can to shoot oil into the hole at the base of the filter
plate until it would not take any more oil. This would fill the oil pump with
oil. Spin the filter back on you were good to go.
