1750 Gas-Cartridge Oil Filter Leaks at Base

I would be grateful for any help which could be provided on this.

Despite using a NAPA 1824 Cartridge Oil Filter for the engine oil, AND snugging up the factory center bolt on the oil filter housing as much as I dare, the oil leaks out at the base of the filter housing as if it were a sieve.

I used one of the rubber gaskets which came with the cartridge filter...there were 3 provided...and chose the one which seemed to fit into the "gasket groove" at the base where the filter housing attaches on the side of the engine block.

The oil filter housing is as good as new, it has no dents, imperfections, or rust.

The tractor was purchased new and has had no engine modifications or damage of any kind. In addition, it has always been shedded.

I am running out of ideas on this one, folks.

Any thoughts?

Thank you!

Greg The gasket was always a little bit big for the groove in the housing when I would use the filters from Oliver or White Farm Equip. if the gasket fits in too easily the filter can may not sitting on the gasket properly to seal it. I used to have to use either my fingers or a small screw driver to go around the gasket and sort of "walk" it into place.
