Oil filter kit for an Ariel Square four

Postby KevinOToole » Fri Jun 22, 2018 3:20 pm

I am a new convert to Ariels and any advice would be appreciated but my present query is oil filters....
I fitted a draganfly oil filter kit when I rebuilt the engine of my recently purchased, 1958 Ariel Square Four. After the rebuild, I ran the bike for about fifty miles, then decided to change the oil and filter.
I had a spare filter for my Unit 650 Triumph and I noted, as I fitted the Ariel filter housing, that it was the same as the Triumph.
I just changed the oil and the fitted the Triumph filter. Although the oil filter is the same make, it is slightly longer. As it fitted OK, I have fitted it.
Any thoughts on this change to a longer filter and Ariel Square four oil filters in general.

Can't see a problem fitting the longer filter..if it fits OK; more filter material the better, surely? I also have the Drags oil filter kit fitted to my '46 KG500....very pleased with it.

I have the longer filter fitted to mine - the shorter ones are much more difficult to find.
