URGENT! cannister style oil filter help for 66 C10 V8 283 #1307101

I had this truck about 3 weeks. I am changing the oil and it has the old style original cannister style oil filter. I am having trouble seeding the rubber gasket. the gasket seems slightly too big for the middle section and too small for the outer ring. I bought and adapter thinking i would try that and I am having the same major oil leaking from the sides. Is there some trick to getting the rubber gasket to seed correctly? The leak is not a small leak.

Any help would be great.

"Seeding"? Are you trying to grow gaskets? Here's the problem- - - - -you have part of an adapter for a spin-on type filter, not the complete conversion piece, and none of the pierces needed to position the canister-type filter housing with the small square O ring correctly. Pick one style or the other- - - - -right now you're not equipped to run any kind of filter at all.

Here's the part you need to use the canister filter. Copy the link quickly before it gets deleted by one of the moderators.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/55-67-CHEVROLET-V8S-OILFILTER-CANISTER-ADAPTER-OEM-USED-RE8/362608073563?hash=item546d201b5b:g:mSsAAOSwZVpcmiOa

The part that's on there now is part of an adapter for a spin-on filter, without enough bits and pieces to make it work. Someone must have spent a LOT of time getting the big O ring positioned just right to keep it from leaking without having the guide plate in place.

ok.. so buying that piece... where does the Oring fit on that piece?

Would buying a adapter kit for a new style spin on filter be better?

What would I have buy to make a conversion kit work?

Thanks for your help, just trying to think thru options

The O ring fits around the outside of the part in the auction- - - -there's about a 1/8" gap between it and the biggest machined ring in the block. With the adapter that's on there now, it might be possible to find a spin-on filter with a seal ring that fits the inner machined surface, but most conversion adapters have their own gasket surface built in. Search "oil filter conversion adapter" on Ebay to see a bunch of them listed.

Any chance you might know what adapter that is on there?

I believe back in the dark ages there was a spin-on filter with a gasket that fit the inner machined surface on the block. You might try checking a filter manufacturer's website like WIX to find one with the right thread and gasket diameter for that application. I'd rather spend a few bucks and get an adapter for a filter that's more commonly available.

Yes, get all new. Start over. Plenty of brand choices and videos on internet. Spin on is the only way to go.
