Same story here. The mythical 2087 does exist!!

Thanks again @Tomster

I opened mine and it has no O rings. Anyone else?

Edit:

I see that is the case with everyone else. I don't see why you cant use your old O rings. They can be bought separately for about $1.00 from ford, so I read.

I currently have 3... one from a friend, and two from South Bay Ford that just arrived. The ones from South Bay did not include O-rings. If desperate for a filter and you meet Tomster's criteria, PM me and I can help.

Just helping fellow GT350 owners/members.

Keep in mind I’ve done 16 oil changes on my car in 8,400 miles, and I reused the orings once and will never do it again. I’m not saying this will be everyone’s experience….. The one time I reused orings, after a track weekend I noticed I had some oil leaking out from the oil filter housing. It’s wasn’t what I would call significant, but it certainly wasn’t just one or two drops. When I removed the housing, the orings seemed very loose and were easily removed by hand. In my experience the oil filter housing orings don’t have the same elasticity as other orings I regularly come into contact with.

Most other orings I reuse all day long as long as they’re in good condition…. But I’ll never reuse the oil filter housing ones ever again. YMMV

Same here, just picked mine up off the front porch, so happy that I have them but yes mine are missing O-Rings too. Considering the risk we are aware of using the earlier filters I had a couple I was going to use so that will be my O-Ring source for these 2 filters I got today.

I received my filters from South Bay Ford today.
As with others here on the forum - no O rings included.
Thanks again and greatly appreciated, Tom!

I really don't think that the O rings are a mandatory replacement. Each time I chuck them, they are perfectly fine. I will look at the service manual and see what it says later.

I received mine today and also no o-rings. I called and the guy that answered said they went through all the remaining inventory and none of them have o-rings. The guy to contact is out until Thursday so he said call back then.......which I will do and post an update.

I’ve done multiple oil changes and have never replaced the o rings. I’ve not had any issues in my experience

FYI, on the SouthBay website for the filter, it does state that O-rings sold separately. Question is, why would Ford sell them that way?
