    my cousin gave this to me a few years back, just came across it this week.

    He told me it was my Mom's father's , I think he passed when I was 2-3 or so, No memory of him or what he drove.

    What year may it be from, model, v8, etc?

    And would it have been factory or aftermarket, at dealer?

    thanks ya'll

  3. Kralinator is a filter company in Canada. It appears they also make Wix filters or visa versa. This looks like an aftermarket oil filter made for Ford, could be a dealer installed option. It also looks like those common in the 40's and 50's.

    Try Google and look around.

    Older engines didn't always come with a simple screw on oil filter. My '55 chevys' 265 had the bolt running up through it, so you could take the filter element out of the canister. Much like this one. However this one is before engine blocks had a place cast in them for a filter. So my best guestimate is it bolts to the back left side of a Ford Flathead. perhaps for different climates
    There we're many companies that sold "Dealer Installed" items, much like today, and this looks like it came from the "KRALINATOR LIMITED" manufacturer, not Fomoco.
    Haven't got a clue, other than mid fifties, when the Flatty was replaced.

    Best, Derek
