    Sorry if this is a dumb question. I have looked and cannot seem to find a location of the oil filter on the F motor I have.

    Its a 1968 model. Any thoughts.

    I have seen the locations on the 2F next to the fuel pump..
    Is it an internal filter somewhere

    You should have the old canister style filter. Look on the other side for something that looks like the tin man. :p

    I dont see anything Like that, it is on the same side as the oil filler correct?
    I would imagine it has a line in and line out right?

    Anyone got a photo of one?

    You should have oil lines (two tubes) coming off of
    the engine on the driver's side beneath the exhaust
    manifold. Follow these oil lines until you get to
    the filter. I suppose that someone could have
    done a very bad thing and looped the oil line
    back onto itself, thus leaving you without an
    oil filter. If so, you need to get two new oil
    lines, a remote filter bracket, and a new oil
    filter.
