Hello Flackmaster,

Is this also the correct unit for a 1935 1201 Eight?

In which case I am interested please. But I don't know what a reasonable price would be... happy to help figure it out.

Best regards from Tasmania, Aus.

John Mc.

Pardon me for jumping in but the L-6 is correct for 1934 ONLY. Your 1935 used an L-8, similar but with different method of plumbing the inlet and outlet.

Greg, I doubt you'll find an NOS L-6 and even if you did, I'd be reluctant to use it for fear the paper media would be dried out and would rupture and block your oil passages. If you want to keep the authentic appearance and good filtration, your best option is to buy the kit from R&A Engineering that has a reproduction of the exterior of the L-6 but adapted to accept a modern spin-on filter cartridge inside. R&A advertises this in all the hardcopy hobby publications, PAC, CCCA, etc.
