Thanks gents. I'm still not convinced they are the same and will allow me to out the clear bowl on the bottom though?

Am sure they will do the job just fine , but if I have the clear bowl I may as well us it. Nothing like actually being able to see what is or isn't in there.

I think I'll end up having to take the old one off to make sure I get a 100% same replacement .

Pete

PS: I've got one with a deeper bowl, if I find it I'll post it later.

Here it is: LINK
That's the one that I use too - you just need to spray the top (I used black paint) to stop the oxidisation !

I also have the delphi filters, attracted by the cheap price for refills. Is it just me or does anyone else have an issue with those silly plastic drain plugs? One of mine is getting really difficult to budge now. Tried vaseline on it but not much better. I'm worried it will eventually shear.

I spray the plastic drain screw with PTFE lubricant every winter and that seems to do the trick - I expect that the petrol will wash your Vaseline off quite quickly.
