...I've always felt the oil filter was a waste and could eventually get clogged and make matters worse, not better.
Hi all, I'm having a hard time picturing some of these suggestions. Could Stu or Ron please post a picture of how you're eliminating the oil filter? I haven't seen this anywhere on the site.
We’ve been discussing the need for a air/oil separator on the blow by hose. Just minor amounts of oil residue (drips) can contaminate the engine area if not captured.
