This is the current set up, it almost looks like there bolts holding the housing on and not studs and nuts.

after using the zoom facility maybe they are studs.

Hi Adrain Yes they are bolts so it will be easier to remove. John

New spin on housing and filter fitted, this will make future filter changes a doddle

Don’t forget to charge the new filter before fitting it or the engine will suffer low oil pressure when you first start it.  

In a nutshell
The Moore the merrier.

Yes I filled it up before screwing it on, no problems with oil pressure when started, when I next change the filter I will opt for a bigger (longer) one, that one came in the kit and is a bit smaller than the original one but will do for this year.

Thanks for all the advice given from everyone on this thread. Smile

Might be useful for future reference, found some old manuals and documentation for the BMC 1.5 in a friend's boat which i'm slowly scanning and uploading them. They are very useful and quite clear with the explanations, etc. Certainly a million times better than the workshop manuals doing the rounds.

There's 2 up already (a servicing and usage manual and a parts catalogue) which i'm putting here https://www.dropbox.com/sh/33vnxxmut1xz92u/AACAGqZWIx7_IOZ8PNkbUDtTa

Also, after finding my engine's serial number underneath 50 years worth of grime turns out i got a Thornycroft (a marinised BMC by a different name).

Their manual is also excellent and there's no really any difference to a plain BMC given all the dozens of variations out there

While the engine itself will be the same there may be differences in oil filter setups between marinizing if remote filters have been fitted.
