Come on' Purolator mad Not impressed with the weird looking pleats near seam either.

Wondering if the ADBV is getting sliced during the manufacturing process of the filter itself. Not that it couldn't come supplied like that but one would think that is checked before being sent on for further processing.

It's the old non-deburred tapping plate oval holes slicing the ADBV after the filter is assembled, pressed together by leaf spring pressure. Purolator just can't seem to get it right (although this is an older example).

Bullwinkle is correct. one base plate pic I show; hard to see burrs, but they are there and gnarly and unacceptable. I'll use my 2 Bosch D+ instead of one of these

Yep, the sharp edges on the base plate inlet holes are cutting into the ADBV. And it also shows that those inlet holes are partially covered (like about 50%) by the ADBV due to the cut pattern.

shocked2 Maybe. Shame as that 11 year old Puro L24466 I sliced apart had no "shark bites" In that nitrile ADBV
