Oil Filter Cover-Plate

There is a cover-plate where the oil filter would usually be installed. Can I remove this plate and install a filter?

Briggs & Stratton does not recommend the addition of an oil filter to an engine that wasn't originally equipped with one. A special factory-installed mounting nipple is required to accept an oil filter. The process for attaching the mounting nipple cannot be duplicated in the field, therefore, it is impossible to add an oil filter post-production.
