Oil Filter.

On my 1984 Honda TRX 200, Which way around does the oil filter go in. I got it started it and ran it 15 minutes until it went crunch. I drained the oil and it had metal shavings in it. I figure the guy I bought it from had the filter backwards and starved the engine of oil.


Also Where do I find a new air filter, Mine has nothing at the moment.

The '84 Fourtrax 200 doesn't have an oil filter, just a screen. But didn't you say that it had a 250 engine in it? If that's the case, the rubber grommet goes out toward the oil filter cover. The spring sits behind the oil filter against the crankcase.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Which quad do you have? On most Honda quads, the rubber grommet faces outward against the oil filter cover.

It's the 200cc Model but it is an '86 instead of an '84 engine.

When I bough it the screen in the drain plug had the rubber on the inside with the spring out towards the drain plug. Is that right?

Yeah, that keeps confusing me because they only sold the Fourtrax 200 for one year (1984) in the US. I keep forgetting they sold it longer in Canada. And yeah, that's right. Screen goes in first and then the spring and then the drain plug.
