You could try poolcenter.com

ANSWER::

And the problem begins. Do you have the right tools for removing the valve parts? Some valves require specialty tools. Another problem is how do you seat the "spider" gasket. Most glues, caulking compounds do not hold. It may be less expensive -- cost effective -- in time and frustration to replace the entire valve. Even the manufacturer will balk at revealing the glue that they use. Also will you be able to get the gasket seat clean or dry enough?

A pool store may be able to special order the spider gasket. Expect to wait a while.

The oil filter gasket is built into the filter itself, so just by changing the filter, you always get the new gasket.

Oil filter adapter gasket??? Do not understand the question. When you change the oil filter, the new filter has a gasket already installed. What exactly are you talking about?

The oil filter gasket is a rubber ring that is usually bonded to the oil filter. If the oil filter has been removed and has no gasket, then it has become stuck to the engine block. Remove the gasket from the block before installing a new oil filter with it's own new gasket. Be sure to spread a little clean engine oil on the rubber gasket before installation to help seal and prevent sticking to the block. Do not overtighten the filter, turn the filter until the gasket contacts the block and then tighten 1/4 turn more. If the gasket leaks, tighten just enough to stop the leak.

When you replace your oil filter it come with a new gasket. Just make sure when you remove / replace the old oil filter the oil gasket comes out with it.

The gasket comes preinstalled on the new filter. Make sure the gasket comes off when you remove the old filter. Apply a think layer of oil to the new filters gasket before installing.

On the filter. The open end that you screw on has a gasket around the outer edge. Oil the gasket before installing.

User Avatar

Oil coming from the oil filter area usually means that the gasket for the oil filter is not seating right. If the filter was changed recently, the old gasket could have been left on, along with the new gasket, causing a bad seal.

Your 1997 Mercury uses a spin on cartridge filter. The gasket is built into the filter. Just apply a thin layer of oil to the new filter gasket and screw it on. Tighten 3/4 turn after it makes contact with the mounting surface. Do not over tighten. If the old gasket was left on when you removed the old filter just pull it off.

To change the gasket remove the oil filter. There will be 2 bolts holding the adapter to the block, remove them push the adapter off. Clean both surfaces apply gasket seal to gasket. Put the bolts thru the holes and apply gasket to adapter. Start the bolts into engine block and tighten evenly. Put on a new oil filter making sure the filter rubber gasket has a coating of oil.

Oil filter installed incorrectly as in too tight, too loose, the gasket was not oiled prior to installation, or the old filter gasket was left on. It can also be a valve cover gasket leaking and running down by the filter. Replace the oil filter and oil the gasket and tighten 3/4 turn after it makes contact with the mounting surface. If the leak persists if is not the filter.

Use a filter wrench to loosen then spin off with hand.Make sure you put fresh oil around the new filter gasket and make sure the old gasket is on the old filter.

Have you maintained the water level in the pool? Could be a suction leak. Check the pump lid gasket for correct fit. Have you emptied the pump or skimmer baskets lately? Ken

There is a gasket. It may be an O'ring or it may be a flat gasket. You will know when you purchase a new filter.

User Avatar

Specifically where is it leaking? At the gasket? Replace gasket.

User Avatar

clean the surface that the oil filter seals to, sometimes the gasket from the old filter will stick, or there could be rust/dirt on that surface and it isn't sealing properly.

User Avatar

Not applying a film of oil to the gasket before installation. Grit or dirt on the gasket or mounting surface. Over-tightening the filter. Only tighten 3/4 turn after making contact with the mounting surface.

User Avatar

oil filters normally have a o ring or a d ring not a gasket. and it is installed on filter itself if you have the spin on type or around the filter cap / screw in housing if you have the cartridge type
