[TR] TR 6 oilfilter

 I find the spin-on filter adapter a huge improvement over the stock.  For one, the oil pressure builds up much more quickly upon start-up.  Also if you angle the filter a little towards the front bleeding the clutch is unimpaired.  Since my car has an early oil pan with the drain plug in the front, no issues.
But the first point is the big deal.

I can barely bleed the clutch or change the oil with the spin on filter, can't imagine the canister being worse, but maybe I don't have the same aftermarket setup.

  I wonder who designed this vehicle knowing that we like to occasionally change the oil filter. After trying gymnastics to remove the canister, we loosened the clutch slave cylinder which did the trick. Then installed a spin-on adapter which made the job easy. My question is why would they make a routine chore next to impossible. The opposite of the TR3 where most everything is open. Thank God my wife was able to get in there!  Joe Mato** triumphs at autox.team.net **
