Fram Oil Filters

Recommended Posts

Do you have the little catch tray to prevent oil from draining down on the engine when changing the filter? Also make sure the drain tube is not plugged and that oil did not overflow the tray. If any oil did get on the engine it will be blown around by the flywheel fan.

When you took the old filter off, did you remove old gasket at same time? Often the rubber gasket will stick to block, and when you put new filter on with its new gasket the two gaskets fail to seal properly. Showed my kids(4) when teaching them how to change their own oil. And it has stuck in their minds. One was changing oil with her boy friend, and when he handed her the old filter, the first thing she noticed was gasket missing. I do not use Fram, but think leak is not Fram's fault.

Check out this site for some interesting analysis of oil and filters. I see it a lot like the Chevy VS Ford VS Dodge debate as personal preference and experience will determine a choice. http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/ Best of luck with your leak. Rick

I personally wouldn't use a Fram filter on my bicycle! I have taken them apart before..after several thousand miles, the paper is still clean, but my oil is dirty. Seems there is little or no flow in the filter. NAPA or Baldwin are both good filters, when not using original equipment.

I will second the recommendation about www.bobistheoilguy.com They have a lot of useful information on that site about oil and filters. In my opinion, don't use a fram filter on ANYTHING if you don't have to!

I use Napa now. No problems. Used to use Frams on all my Tractor applications including Hydrostatic trannys. Usd to work OK till they improved them and added the Black hand grips. Now they are too restrictive. The hydro trannys wouldnt work because of the lack of oil flow. Switched to NAPA and had no more troubles. I even bought a 7018 Simplciity that supposedly had a bad tranny. Got it home and they had a fram filter on the tranny. That again was the problem.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
