Oil filter

Postby Ozmadman » Wed Mar 28, 2018 9:41 pm

Just had a look at the picture in club spares of the long oil filter. Is there some mistake? as the picture shows a filter either just felt or one with the felt on the outside, surely this is incorrect as it should look the same as the short version with the felt on the inside of the mesh and could cause bits of felt to come away and block oil ways. Also, I can't believe the price!! almost 20 quid?? think I will keep washing out my old one

I've got a spares scheme long filter and the felt is (correctly) on the inside. The picture is wrong. It is damned expensive though!

Thanks, I am sure they were only about £10 a short while back
