Please watch my video link above. I have ordered both the civilian oil filter for the L134 and the Military version and the gasket for the lid of the canister does not fit. Military is too big and civilian is too small. What filter canister gasket do I need for a 1949 Jeepster with an L134 flat four?

The WIX website at

http://www.wixfilters.com/Lookup/filterlookup.aspx?

in the vehicle lookup box and choosing passenger car-light truck, lists some possible filters to check. Clicking on the suggested filter link gives filter and gasket dimensions. When I tried different combinations of years and engines, 51010, 51006, 51080 were listed as some possibilities. Perhaps that will help.

For what it's worth, the 51100 perfectly fits my CJ5 with a filter canister that says "military standard filter" (or something similar) on the lid.
