    67 ST400 switch pitch with the horseshoe pan, do I have to use the early filter again or can I swap it out for a later filter for cheaper and better filtering overall?

    You will need the tube that slides into the case if you want to use the more popular and easier to find flat filter.......I dint think anything besides that and the bolt and spacer are needed

    You will need to drill and tap the hole for the filter bolt.

    So I can’t just secure the filter really hard to the pickup tube?

    It's not hard to drill and tap that hole, but if you permanently put the filter to the tube how do you plan to service it later????

    New tube. It’s honestly probably never been serviced before, so I’m guessing it’ll last the rest of the time it exists.

    Curious, they don't make the correct filter for the swp?

    They do, its just twice as expensive and apparently filters half as well.

    Right, the newer style filter is held in place with a bolt to the valve body. Without it secured, the filter can move around, leak, or possibly fall off of the pickup tube. To use the newer filter properly, the valve body should be drilled and tapped for the filter bolt.

    Hmm true you are 9.5” fixed pitch for the future. What would you want to get for it Larry?

    Beside the above, the later pan is deeper (for the filter) than the heel print pan. I
    always convert to the newer pan/filter, adding drain at the back edge.
