CJ2A oil filter hook up
Hi All, I am trying to put a stock canister on my dads '47 cj2a after it has been without one for the past 30 years. I have the canister but need to know where it hooks up. I know there is a fitting that goes to the oil pressure gauge on the rear of the engine, but dont know if that is the one that it hooks to. I know it also needs a return line. Where is that? How large of a diameter do the oil lines to and from the filter need to be? Also, there is a hole on the bottom of the canister and the side, which one goes where? Thanks for all the help

I have a '52 MCM-38 similar to your CJ-2a. I'll take a look when I get home try and get some pics up

Yes, the pressue side of the filter is teed off the sender port. The return is via a fitting on the front cam cover, at least in the F heads. May be some useful into here
