Title: Install ~ In Line filter```
Post by: sidekickyc on January 07, 2018, 03:38:58 PM
I told youngest~ about the Frantz Filter ~ she said: I want it``` I have a few of them I've gathered over the years~ used them since the 50s```

So, she and I installed one~ Uncle Arnold~ gave us ( Arnold just left to be with the Lord~ at 98.5 years~ good guy~ fought in France WWII)

Here are some picture of the install~ I used a Sandwich Adapter to bring a bit of oil to the filter~ the filtered oil return is on the filler tube as you can see```

Wouldn't mind hearing what youse guys think```

We~ youngest and I~ decided not to change the oil~ after installing the filter~ it will be fun watching the oil~ get cleaner and cleaner```

That was about 150 miles ago~ we Changed the filter roll today~ the next change will be 3 to 5000 miles from now```

We don't plan ever to change the oil```
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This Filter Is more correctly call: Bypass Filter as it is not in line with the spin on filter that will remain on the engine
this filter will take a small amount of oil before the OEM filter to be filtered and returned to the engine pan```
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There will be no acid~ water is removed by the filter~ acid will not form

Oil additives will not be removed they are in solution~ not particulates```

additives do dissipate or wear out~ but will be refreshed at oil changes~ with 1 quart added to replace oil contained in filter roll```

Oil does not wear out~ but gets polluted with particulates~ turning it into mud``` The filter will remove particulates from the oil~ the oil should become cleaner and cleaner~ while removing~ 160,000 miles of mess from inside the engine```

Interesting in deed.  What is more interesting is I had a great uncle named Arnold, spent time in Europe in WW2 also.  He was a die hard Amsoil man.  He talked about the Amsoil bypass filters.  It is a pretty good idea, and great product.  If you are running a lot of miles, it can sure save some money.  My concern would be with never changing the oil.  I would personally at least have an oil sample analyzed at an interval.  It isn't so much the oil that is the problem with age, but the additive package.

Hi JollyZuk~ You're very close~ a GMC Yukon``` I've good news for you~ the additives are in solution and are not trapped by the filter``` You are right~ the oil can be sent to Blackstone~ many users do get an analysis~ we may do that after enough miles```

I have one on my 1950 Chevy moving van~ 66 Jeep Vagoneer~ nice to have oil that is always clean~ you know the color that oil would be if it wasn't full of soot and ash and who know what ``` I've had them on my vehicles since the 50s```

I'm tempted to pull a valve cover~ to see the glop~ but ``` Here's to your Uncle Arnold```
