No probs Trev., I'd say I'm in as deep as you *smile*, and i did have more of a look and found that the M16 x 1.5 is very close to something like UNF? @16TPI? OR NPPT or something I'll have a look at when i stager back to the Chaparral later. ..or is it the Ponderosa   *conf*

 Forget most of that- the 5/8" UNF 16 TPI has magically ceased  to exist, also NPPT turns out I was thinking NPS- not either..... *dunno* *dunno*

For anyone using the Norton oil filter head and needing the Citroen 2CV spin on filter - I've just bought some of the Borg and Beck version reference BFO 4180.  They are painted black and the only text is on an easy to peel off sticker, so look reasonable if the filter is visible.

Greybeard,
I also found that size does matter; I had to custom make a head, to get it to fit in plunger & rigid frame toolboxes..
Takes a standard element however.

I've just put my oil filter under the swinging arm. Used a B&S spin on (2"x 2 3/8") p/n 795990. Copied Orabanda and machined an alloy adaptor. A little bit of fiddling and bracketry but i'm pleased with the result.
