Series 2 oil filter on Series 1?

Post by Txateu » Fri Jun 01, 2018 6:16 pm

Had my heart set on doing a service on my car this weekend but supercheap auto didn't have the z436 Ryco oil filter for the series 1. They did have the z411 filter which is for the series 2 so I bought it in case it fits. If not I'll just change over at another store.

Anyone know if it's okay to use the z411 on a series 1 engine?

Should be fine, alot of people use the series 2 filters as they are larger. Might have to file down one of the brake line plastic brackets.

Will not fit if you are running a sandwich plate on the filter pedestal for gauges as extra height in filter will foul on the firewall.

I believe there is a difference in the pressure bypass in the filters but shouldn't affect operation

Cheers mate, just fitted the oil filter. Your right, the only difference is the length.

No need to cut back anything.
