Wipac oil filters.

Cover of the filters guide
This catalogue was published in 1962 by Wipac. It describes their range of oil filters for cars, commercial vehicles, tractors, and certain plant applications, including the relevant part number references. In the main, applications are for 1950s-1960s vehicles, although in some instances earlier types, from the 1930s and 1940s, are also listed. There is also a cross-reference chart, so that equivalent filters produced by companies AC, Fram, Purolator and Tecalemit, can be referenced to those from Wipac. Information such as this can prove very useful when scouring the autojumbles and eBay for parts. There's also a table which includes the internal and external diameter measurements for the sealing rings used by these replaceable-element filters. Hopefully it'll prove to be of use. Coincidentally, this publication was one of many acquired from the family of the gent shown above, stood outside the garage in which this catalogue once resided.

It may be that since these period instructions were created, better ways have since evolved to tackle work on the components being considered. Tips and advice may be given in these period articles, but inclusion doesn't necessarily suggest that anyone involved with OCC endorses the methods portrayed. A certain level of mechanical know-how will be required in undertaking work as described in these pages, and anyone unsure of their own abilities is advised to seek further assistance. Delve into your car's inner workings only if you feel confident in your own abilities, after all - a little knowledge can be dangerous, as the old saying goes.
