Jim, I saw that after I reread your message. The biggest problem, at least with trying to match MY gears, is the shaft diameter. The Boston Gear 54 tooth has a bore of .250 inches and I need 4 mm or 5/32 inch.
So I'm now trying to 3D print some. Once I get the design right, I may then try to print in bronze.
Thanks Alan I like Mini Spares and their Potters Bar shop is not too far from me. But I couldnt find the part on their website. My filter head, viewed from above,is attached. Not sure which mine is! I was thinking I will go for the Flexolite adapter, which comes much cheaper than the Moss part,but looks very similar http://www.flexolite.co.uk/cat.asp?cID=4&page=OIL_FILTER_ADAPTORS
Jan, This is the write up by Dave Braun (Thanks Dave) which I used with success. The fuel height adjustment is fiddly but can be done with patience. (item 6 & 7) It is important to get then both at the same height. Hope this helps. Rod
Thanks for that! I hope to find a distributor for Boston Gear and order a set or two.
However, I'm not sure I agree with you on the hub dimensions. Whereas, my metric dimensions could very well be inch sizes, neither gear I have has a hub, and both gears' bores seem to be just a shade under 4 mm or .157 inches. The shafts that the gears are pressed onto are closer to 6 mm than 1...
Graham You should just need a £15 filter head from Minispares. Fit it to the Frogeye angled spacer. Gently bend your metal oil pipe pipe to fit it taking care not to kink it. Screw on a filter and job done If you have the long filter head you will have to release the long studs from the angled spacer and you will need two UNC bolts - again available from Minispares.
