Are there any "packings" or O-rings, gaskets, seals that I should order along with a new filter element? I have the same instructions downloaded but I can't find anything about any oil-filter housing O-rings. I had a 93 Aero saab that had the same internaly type oil filter and there was a O-ring that had to be replaced everytime I took off the oil filter cap.
The filter comes with the O-ring for the filter housing cap and two new copper washers for the drain plugs.
