Changed oil.. Odd parts

When I was changing my oil today, I spun off my filter and along with it came three pieces. A spring, circular piece that almost looks like clutch material, and a washer. Do you guys have a clue what this is?

Yep, its a check valve. Without it installed, there is a portion of your oil that isn't getting filtered and is just circulating back into the engine. The first model trucks had that check valve retained by staking it in and many have fallen out over the years, the later build engines had a snap ring instead. At least you found the parts, When I did the first oil change on my truck after buying it I noticed the check valve was gone.

You can try restaking them back in (spring in first, then disc, then washer) or you can get the updated oil filter header adapter part that uses snap rings. If you need the part number for it, let me know. Cheers!

Sadly I have done nothing, I keep forgetting about it.
Patrick I would like that part number. Is it just the header or a whole new oil cooler? I wish I could just buy the check valve parts and install them.. don't want to do an oil cooler swap.

Here are some part numbers:

Oil Filter Header (updated snap ring retained bypass and regulator valves)
(Ford) F81Z-6881-BA

Oil Cooler Housing Gasket (front)
(Ford) F7TZ-6A636-AAA
(International) 1831666C1

Oil Cooler Header Gasket (rear; oil filter end)
(Ford) F4TZ-6A636-AA (97-up)
(Ford) F4TZ-6A636-B (96-before)
(International) 1831665C1

Oil Cooler O-Rings (one each to seal cooler at each header)
(Ford) E3TZ-6C610-A
(Ford) E4TZ-6K649-E
(International) 1807563C1, Inner 1804414C1 Outer

You'll need to drain the coolant. Might as well reseal the oil cooler while you're there as you'll be doing half of it anyway. Unless you get a good deal from your local dealer, get this stuff from Tousley Ford Parts online (usually a lot cheaper). Cheers!

It's not that bad other than being messy. Cheers!

It can be a pain to wiggle the oil cooler out from around the crossmember too. I'd always heard that you had to jack up the engine to get it out, but that isn't the case. It'll come out with a little maneuvering with the engine in place.
