So, my understanding is that you had the original oil filter removed and blocked off and had a 2 liter front cover installed that has the screw-on oil filter. I would like to know how the oil passages were modified, because the 2 liter front covers and blocks have the oil passage located in a slightly different position. Later 105 1300 and 1600 front covers and their respective blocks had spin-on oil filters located on the front cover.
These motors never came to the US. It's possible that later 1750's used a similar front cover that could be used? A good photo of the original oil filter location on the block,with it's block off plate and the engine serial number would go a long way towards identifying this as a correct 1750.
