1976 300 D oil filter housing

Jiffy Lube mashed the canister surrounding my oil filter and the car now leaks like a sieve.

I ordered a replacement filter housing, and what I got is a much more complicated part with what looks like some sort of mechanical hook up and oil lines. The part includes the housing, but the attached pieces make it one unit.

The damaged housing just surrounded the filter and bolted into the other parts.

Did they send me the part for a different year?

any ideas on where to go from here?

Not an expert on diesels and i'm guessing your car is a w123 , try posting this on the 123 forum here & I'm sure the oil burner guys will know[:)]

Is your vehicle a 115 or 123 body style?
