The deflector disc is pressed on - but they can become loose after 60 years. You can panel beat the edge around the centre boss to reduce the bore slightly -until it fits tightly on. The spring etc works as mentioned to hold the filter against the disc. The system will allow the filter to lift off its seat (and leak full oil flow by) if the filter is not serviced and gets clogged - a fail safe arrangement. Other jaguars of the period used all the same parts on a different housing - so its worthwhile buying a mk10/mk2/420 one if you want spare parts. The ebay link selling a centre bolt is not e-type - or any other jag - it should have a formed flange on the end which is part of the bolt. The 3.8 bolt is longer with a coarse thread than the shorter fine threaded 4.2 version.

hope this helps

Serge, congrats for reaching a good fit of the canister ultimately. I feel your painful experience because I lived the same.
A slight difference though: the thin seal provided with the filter was too thin, so when tightening the canister edge simply twisted it and I got 3 liters of oil on the garage floor.
The thick seal was too thick to fit in the groove, so had to patiently sand it down by 0.3mm to get it to fit.
I also welded a washer to the long bolt and doubled the felt washer. Not one drop of oil leaked since.

Greetings E-Type Buddies,

I've read through all of this and please forgive my trepidation regarding the original oil filter canister.... Would some kind soul be willing to confirm that I have the requisite parts to reassemble my canister utilizing the JLM9544 filter element? There were several "homemade" parts inside when I disassembled it for the first time. I've ordered what I think I need from SNGB. Is this the best filter element to use? My car is a 1964 3.8 S-I OTS. Many many thanks.....

Hi,
Missing. I'll forget the washers you have.
You must used the thicker seal. With a knife, "cut" or " break" the interior angle of the seal, oil it, and it will fit more easialy into the grove. You'll must to push hard anyway.
Don't tighten the canister just like that, you must centerlised it properly when you arrive in contact with the seal.

Ok but don't take it too seriously because 1" UNF has 14 tpi, not 12 as they say.

Regards
I only want to get involved here to this extent: 1"-12 UNF is correct. This is the odd size that Jaguar used for their oil filters from the S3 XJ6 to the eight cylinder motors.
