My Toyota landcruiser (Diesel) has an extra external oil filter canister fitted. It is marked 'Filter 2000 Pty Ltd" and this model fits two cartidges. I use to buy them from an agent in Belmont WA, however they moved and I can not find them. Does anyone know where these filters are available from in WA. I understand the same company markes fuel filter that work in a simular way - external canister with removable filter.
I understand they are made in Australia and also used on earthmoving equipment as you can couple the cannisters together to make the system use 6 or 8 or more filters to once

Sounds like fleetguard or CAV.
Do a google and see what you can find. Bear in mind CAV are now owned by Delphi.

To me it sounds like a form of by-pass filtering. I have recently fitted an AMSOIL dual-head unit to my Patrol so that oil is filtered to much finer tolerences (less than 1 micron whereas standard filters are good to about 20 microns). This involved the removal of one of the standard filters (the Patrol has 2 normally anyway) and replacing it with a screw-on fitting with 2 hoses running off to the remote head unit. The remote head has 2 filters, one large (by-pass) filter and the other one is effectively there to do the job of the one I removed from the block.
I'm not sure what the thread sizes are on your head unit, but you may possibly be able to use AMSOIL filters instead of the others if you can't get hold of any.
Hope this helps.
