With the careful use of O rings and a couple of penny washers you should be able to fit a CAV 296 filter element inside the bowl. Otherwise replace the complete assembly with one compatible for the 296. The dimensions of the head are very similar, you just need to ensure that the connections are correctly handed and threaded. The link is for picture reference only. There are variations on the actual layout and bottom bowl. Your local fuel injection specialsit will be able to advise you and obtain necessary parts.

If you mention which town you live in you may get more replies.
