Oil Canister Leaking


I have a 1956 dodge 315 hemi. I like the old school oil filter but, I never can get the upper part were the long bolt goes through to stop leaking. What is supposed to be at that end to seal it from leaking. Now the bottom end always comes with a new gasket. Some tips would be great

Should be a rubber washer under the head of the bolt.

Thanks, I have been using a rubber o-ring but sometimes it leaks. The inside of the canister is very worn, I don't know if it was flat or was it a bevel surface, originally. Just trying to see if people have had a problem with this and what they have done to fix it and no I like the old school look of it and don't want a remote oil filter. Be thankful for any input.

Get the HH OEM up angle adaptor & use the K&N Filter that has the bolt head looking end on it. Paint the whole thing silver (or what ever color you're using) & it won't look all that much different from OEM. a lot of people probably wouldn't even notice.

Yeah, I will just buy the HH 30* oil filter adapter and just solve all my problems. Thanks

Your picture looks like its in good enough shape, just missing the washer.
I was thinking that back in the day the washer was supplied with the filter, You might ask your parts guy to look in another box, or try a different brand.
The spin on filter with the adapter sure does make things easier though.
It doesn't have to be a remote, there is an adapter that puts a spin on filter in the same place.
