Just did my first oil change...quick question.

First of all this is a great site.

I am pretty familiar with oil changes but this was my first on my (new to me) 94 D90.
Drained oil, refilled, then removed filter (and filled), reinstalled filter. Put 7 quarts in and the oil light when out right away.

I removed a none Land Rover oil filter that is quite smaller than the OEM LD filter that I replaced it with (ERR3340).

Quick question... the diameter of the smaller filter is less than the OEM. The rubber ring matches perfectly with the OEM. The OEM filter's full diamter does not "mate" completely flush with the oil filter plate. However, the rubber seats perfectly and there are no leaks.

Am I missing something. I replaced it with a genuine LD filter for this model.
I attached a link to the filters.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

It is fine with the genuine filter. The smaller one is the dodge filter. Both work as well as the "ford" filter which is the same as the ph8a fram.

Thanks Ron.
I thought it was probably ok. Just wanted a second opinion.
