For my Gamma Berlina 1981 I bought a couple of original oil filters a few years ago. They are all used now and because I could not find the original ones, I bought a Bosch filter. The size is different: it is smaller and higher, which causes it to contact the steel feather/spring from the clutch. It fits if you push the feather a little bit aside, but it is not like it should be I guess. Does anybody have tips, e.g. another aftermarketfilter that is similar to the original size? Is it a problem to use the higher type? Kind regards

Alternative oil filters is a common discussion topic amongst Gamma owners. The original Technocar R71 is probably the best. I have tried most of the alternatives and I found that the Coopers Z509A is by far the best alternative. Other alternatives are FIAM FT 44875 and  TJ FB2086. In theory any filter for the Daimler/Jaguar V12 engine should fit the Gamma but not all have anti-drain valves fitted.

Dont buy Mahle equivalent to Z509A as it possibly has a higher rated bypass valve and causes engine problems when the Gamma engine oil is hot leading to no oil pressure.
