    So would the standard CAV / Delphi "o" rings work as a replacement.

    Yes mate pretty sure they are the same. Sorry I haven't got back to you - been a bit occupied with cyclone Debbie. Still no power here.
    Cheers......Brian

    Read in an earlier post that you can fit a filter if you want to, but it requires a longer bolt through the guts. In my Disco 1 that means taking the housing out the first time, to fit the new bolt. After that it's just a matter of dropping the bottom off, clean the trap and replace the filter. That's what I'm planning to do with mine, as I'll be spending a fair bit of time out west in the future. Some people have replaced theirs with a glass bottomed one - can't really see the point in the Disco, as it'll be covered in dirt and dust, and quite susceptible to rocks etc, where it is located.



    Fleetguard FF167A are the same as the CAV 269, too. $6.50 each from the local filter & bearing joint.

    I replaced mine with a filter, using a new head (provision for the small o ring), a longer bolt and the existing metal base because I didn't want to worry about the glass getting smashed. It still seems to separate water, as the filter paper has a special coating designed to coalesce water.
    It's probably overkill, given the Isuzu filter at the engine.
    Agree with Rar110 that its best not have too fine a micron rating in the primary filter but so far so good.
