I have a 560 Farmall tractor. I finally got the oil filter canister to
stop leaking from the base, but cannot stop the leak from the top
nut at the copper washer. Any ideas anyone???

If you have already replaced that copper washer and it still leaks, chances are good that someone. at some point, has over-tightened the bolt, and thus the top of the canister is now mis-shaped and collapsed. Easiest way to fix that is to find another canister.

I have had the same problem with one one an M and 706. You could try a new washer or I had better results using a nylon washer.

like the others have said the nylon gasket should help, take the old one with you to a good auto parts store, [carquest or napa] they usualy have a box of these and can size one up like yours so you get the proper inside and outside diameters,

mine was leaking too when I got it.
copper washer would not hold.
finally straighten it out best as I could with a brass rod and hammer.
I then brazed a thick washer onto the top.
Took it down to a local machine shop and had him put it in a lathe and true up the top of the washer.
haven't had any problems since.

I went to NAPA, Advanced Auto, Fastenal, and TSC...nobody has nylon washers that size! The washer doesn't look like anything is wrong with it. The NAPA guy suggested I use sandpaper to clean it up and try it again. Hate to go to the Farmall store and pay $6 for a washer! Sad

There is a another way to stop it. Get an o ring that fits under the head of bolt and another one put between washer and canster. This has allways worked for me . You want to keep extra o rings because you will have to replace them every time you change oil filter.

How much gas have you used running around trying to save a buck? Do yourself a favor and get the correct part or get used to the leak.
