Magnesium Porsche Racing Oil Filter Assembly from EB

EB Motorsport unveils its reproduction of the original Porsche racing oil filter assembly. Designed, tested and manufactured completely in-house at EB Motorsport’s UK manufacturing facility, the latest addition to its extensive parts catalogue was a labour of love for the Porsche 911 racers, two-time champions in Masters Historic Racing.

As with the original part, the main filter housing and cap are chromate-coated cast magnesium. All original manufacturing details have been faithfully reproduced: from the cork gaskets to the spring rates of the pressure relief valves. Each assembly has been pressure tested, with the pressure relief valve set to a nominal 100psi.

The Racing Oil Filter Assembly is EB’s most complex part to date, with development encompassing 3D scanning, solid modelling and rapid prototyping. Careful machining of the detailed castings leads to a breathtaking showcase of EB Motorsport’s technical ability.

The only items that we haven’t had to reproduce are the nuts and washers, one ball bearing and the ‘grenade filter’ assembles: these were manufactured by the original supplier and took over three months to reproduce. The rest is completely produced by EB Motorsport.

We started manufacturing parts when the equipment we were buying for our race cars was of an unsatisfactory quality. Nothing has changed since then: all EB Motorsport parts come from Yorkshire and that will continue.

Deliveries of EB Motorsport’s Porsche Racing Oil Filter assemblies have already started. Priced at £2495 plus VAT, enquiries are welcome to [email protected]. Porsche parts coming from EB Motorsport in 2015 include an FIA-compliant exhaust system for early 911 2-litre race cars. The system is currently undergoing very promising dyno tests on EB’s 1965 Porsche 911 racer.
