So, it's 45% less than one that would be made by Snap-On. Congrats on the awesome deal! grin.gif

Boy, they really went to great lengths to come up with original fluting. But I am sure that the fluting really contributes to the filter's ability to remove stuff from the oil (Not).

Reminds me of a friend of mine that had an '60s Ferrari years ago. It had two oil filters, right and left. One was a PH8 ford type filter, the other was identical except for the LEFT HAND THREAD.... dopeslap.gif...$35 from Italy in the late '70s.

I can't remember for sure, but I've seen at least two manufacturers on either AdvRider or UKGser.

Made my own wrench out of a scrap piece of aluminium and 4 3/16 dowel pins. Cost - next to nothing. Works like a charm !
