Sorry it took so long to reply. Well.. when I installed the converter it went a little, then after turning it a bit it slid in quite a bit, so much so I almost smacked my fingers. It has a pan that has a drain plug and it looks deeper than stock. the old double o ring came out with the filter. However I am not confident on how well the new filter holds in the tube. How far in the tube should the new o ring go? AND is there anything I can do to help hold the filter in there? If the filter dropped out of the tube would this cause a "no go" in any gear situation?
