Are these loose flakes? Could be calcium deposits if attached to pool walls etc. Are you adding proper amounts of muriatic acid? Are you testing your pH? Alkalinity?

Where do you install an oil filter on a 1960 Rambler six cylinder if it is missing?

Are you talking about a cartridge type filter? If so, you install it in the filter cartridge housing, normally located under the hood. Purchase the filter and you will then see what type it has. Of course a screw on filter is probably not what you have as the engine would dump all the oil, if the filter were missing. I must assume it has a cartridge filter. No assuming here, a PB50 fram spin-on oil filter that is between the battery and the air cleaner, under the hood. Upside down and if it wasn't there, you'd know it.

Raise hood. Using your hands, remove the plastic engine cover. Look to the side of the engine for a canister that hangs down. This is the filter. Remove the large plug on top of the oil filter cartridge with a large socket wrench. Pull up on the plug and the filter will come up with it. Replace the oil filter cartridge and put the oil cartridge back into the canister.
