Anyone replace cartridge filter on an Indmar Ford?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to do mine. It seems the canister is rather high on the motor so I expect when the oil is drained it will be fairly empty. Is that true?  How much mess in removing the top?

Also, is it a 32mm oil filter nut?

Interesting that I ordered an Indmar filter from Bakes and got a Volvo brand filter.

I screwed up when I did mine because I hadn't drained much of the oil out yet (you need a suction device to attach onto the hose that you feed out the rear drain plug! fyi) so of course I spilled some oil out of it then. After I drained though and opened up again it was simple and mess free. Don't know the size of the nut, I just used a crescent wrench.

It is the correct oil filter, I thought the same thing but upon removal of the old one, its the exact same.

Just like any boat engine. Drain/suck the oil out, then loosen the filter & put a 1 gallon zip lock baggie over the filter & unscrew it into the bag. Done right, any drips land in the bag. Then zip it up & pull the mess out.

these are cartridge filters Bill, you unscrew a lid then the filter comes out the top... not the typical spin on filter but I do like that idea!! never thought of doing that, will be great on the automobile oil changes

There may also be a replacement o-ring for the lid supplied with the cartridge.
