The oil filter canister is attached to the right (right side of vehicle)
of the engine using a bracket that fits under three of the right front
nuts. That is, it is at the top of the engine rather than the side or
that is common in newer vehicles.
The canister itself is about 8" in diameter and 14" high. The top is
domed and has a hex nut in the center. To replace the element, you
remove the hex nut and pull the domed top off. The element is inside,
pull it out and replace it with a Fram C-4 or C-4p or equivalent, which
with a new gasket for the domed top.
If you still can't find it, look for a hose that exits the top of the
and follow that. It should lead to the oil filter.
Some CJ-2As were retrofitted with aftermarket spin-on filter kits; if
was done the filter might be somewhere else.
