So after years of sitting and finally starting to get settled into our new house, it was time to start working on the 68. Street Demon installed. Brakes gone over and bled. I Changed the oil today. And yes, I know how much everyone loves the Fram filters but i just had to go against the grain and switch to WIX 51515xp. I did cut the Fram open just to see what the hype was all about. The filter element was glued top and bottom, i found no gaps, ends were clipped together. It has the standard anti-drain back valve. So far i was impressed given the negative press Fram usually gets. Now what i havent seen before is the spring with a combined bypass valve. I tried prying off the disk on the bottom of the spring but it was spring loaded so I left it. It seemed to have significant pressure. The filter element had an even amount of grime and debris so i think it was working properly. There was what looked like charred oil on the inside of the filter, im going to assume it was on he header side. If your curious, this motor is a 1990 roller LA from the junkyard.
