Just spent 5 mins looking at Dutch's picture before I realised what had held my attention was the sunshine showing through the rear wheel,  suffering fro SAD or what ???????????????

As my filter is mounted vertically on the mudguard behind the gearbox I am able to remove the cartridge without mess. Also it's not too obvious.

  Yep- I keep a couple of boxes of sunshine in a dark cupboard for times when the background is a bit dark, works exceptionally well at night  :!

First of all, I must apologise to Dutch. The pipes are 5/16" (8mm)
Finished getting the filter fitted today.
Removed the partition to make more room.
Marked out on back of toolbox space between mudguard and battery.

Neat Solution Roy. How did you secure the short length of hoses onto the Filter Housing tubes? ie. between filter head and toolbox rear.? Was there room for clamps.?

Jubilee clips Colin. Yes, plenty of room.
The housing tubes don't poke through the toolbox casing at all.
The short lengths of 10mm tube were fitted before the filter housing was bolted into the box.
All of the tubes were assembled before the toolbox was fitted in place.
The last joint was made where marked in the picture below.

  No apology needed, but thanks...I have to ask though that you must have edited your post without a note to say so??? I only ask because any subsequent reference to 1/4" 'houses'

        What fittings did members use to connect the 3/8" filter outlets to the A7/A10 oil lines ?

        Roy.

    I used good quality Jubilee clips

I mean, joining the 3/8" i.d. pipe to the 5/16" i.d. BSA oil pipe.

I understand what you are saying Dutch, will do in future  *red*

I edited the ref to ¼ in order not to mislead any one wanting to do the same oil filter mod.

  Just one thing (a bit off topic), re; your reply ^^, is something that happens a lot that your (and many others elsewhere) reply seems to have caught up inside the 'quote' , I only image that you've started typing inside the quote (?)
   Sometimes makes posts really hard to read and figure out which is the quote and what is not- not pickin' on you, just some that I've been meaning to mention many times,seems a good time.  *smile*

Reply, off topic.
I haven't got a clue how it happened Dutch. *dunno*
I don't even know I've done it until I post it.  *conf2*

 Roy, you've done well so far, and I can't say I haven't done forum felonies either without realizing (more than likely have done *smile*)

 I'll leave 'off topic 'there before...the Off Topic Plodsta comes along   *eek*
