    Wix 51372 cut open 2k miles

    Wix 51372 cut open Ford 4.6 2000 miles. Miles SB 10w30 was used. Had to change the starter motor and I hate jacking the car up so I just changed it while it was in the air. Filter looked great, was on for 9 months and there were a lot of cold starts on this OCI. Replaced with same filter.

    Memories of my first wax job

    I definitely remember my first wax job. I was "awarded" the task of hand waxing my dads 64 galaxie with a pretty heavily oxidized red single stage enamel paint job. Took me a week doing it sections at a time 1-2 hours a day. I used meguiars cleaner liquid wax and several microfiber applicator...

    8,918 Miles on Coolant Filter for 6.0 Power Stroke

    That filter looks great. I installed a coolant filter on a Ford 4.6 that hadn't had the coolant changed in 19 years. New hoses, total flush for an hour, new water pump, new coolant reservoir, etc. Got it all clean flowing and plugged the filter the first 20 minutes it was running...

    Ac delco Pf454 cut open unknown miles

    Ac delco Pf454 removed from 2003 chevy avalanche 2500 4x4 with the vortec 8100 engine. Unknown miles the mileage was a few miles over the dealership oil change interval. Replaced with a wix filter. It seemed to hold up pretty well.

    Protec 101 filter cut open

    I put the same filter back on. I bought a 12 pack from Rockauto for a dirt cheap price. I expected it to be a decent filter but the uniform pleats all the way around really surprised me.

    Protec 101 filter cut open

    Protec 101 filter cut open. 200 miles on oil change. New Ford 390. Looks like a nice filter for the price. Seems to hold up to 90 psi oil pressure on cold start and 70 psi going down the road hot just fine so far. Used Shell rotella T4 15W40 with some zddp additive. Combo valve used in this...

    Ford tractor 8N oil canister converted to TP filter

    The car was almost new and extremely low mileage when it was added. I have all oil change records from the era and not one was over 2500 miles, most around 2000. It had some nasty TP media in it when I took it apart.

    Ford tractor 8N oil canister converted to TP filter

    I would seriously avoid the tp oil filter. Last summer I bought a 64 galaxie that had a frantz tp oil filter installed since the 70s. When I tore the engine down for rebuild, which was all original and never touched it wasn't super dirty but the bearings were very worn out for the mileage and...

    Fram Ultra XG2 cut open.

    When you start building engines like this for a hobby the $50 filter cutter becomes pretty irrelevant. I think I paid $40 for mine.

    Fleetguard WF2107 coolant filter, 6300 miles C&P

    I have it set up so that the coolant that exits the heater core goes into the coolant filter, and the coolant coming out of the filter hooks to the return pipe that the stock hose would normally connect the heater core to. Full flow through the filter. Heat at the vent is 150-160 degrees...

    Fram Ultra XG2 cut open.

    I was thinking duct tape instead of welding it.

    Fram Ultra XG2 cut open.

    2500 miles and 10 months with almost all of it being short trip city miles. Filter looks great and I almost contemplated leaving It on for a second OCI. Oil was kinda dirty for the mileage though. I put a WIX 51372 back on and 5.5 quarts of Miles 10w30 synthetic blend oil. The last picture I had...

    Another Baldwin B5134 Cut Open

    Yes this is a coolant filter I have on my 99 grand marquis that had a neglected cooling system. The coolant stays clean now but the filter keeps catching debris. I flushed that system 3 different times and put all new hoses on, with a new expansion tank and stuff is still floating around in the...

    Another Baldwin B5134 Cut Open

    I was surprised how much came out. The first filter I ran plugged immediately, washed it out and ran it another 750 miles and it was packed full again.

    Another Baldwin B5134 Cut Open

    This filter was in service 3100 miles and 1 year and 2 weeks. Looks good. I was surprised how much it had trapped.

    Peak Coolant....is it any good?

    I have had problems with the 351W in my truck eating timing cover gaskets and leaking for years. I'd only get a couple years out of the gaskets and when I'd change the gaskets there would be nothing left of them around the coolant passages to the water pump. The RTV silicone (used various types)...

    Just got 5 old Purolators from 1996

    Are they the gold fine mesh type filter with metal back like this one is? I'd just wash it out rather than buy a new one again. Made that mistake, kind of wasted my money.

    I have been fond of them. I have 4 vehicles that take this filter. I will be buying another case sometime soon.
