1939 320 W142 Oil Filter
« on: October 22, 2013, 09:35:43 PM »
I have been doing a little here and there on the car till car show season is over and I can devote more time to it. I was changing fluids and did not find a oil filter. Not even a screen. There is a line to the gauge but that is all I see. Is there something I am missing or is there just no oil filter?

I also got the spark plugs to come out of the 1936 170V after 45 years of sitting. Sprayed Kroil in and the engine turned over freely.

It's right near the oil filler neck, below and to the rear. It has a linkage to the clutch pedal. It's a stack of plates, the alternating ones rotate and clean debris off the filter every time the clutch is depressed.
