You dont have to call me Mr. Tim is just fine and answer to a whole lot of other names as well. LOL. I didn't say you are wrong, nor anyone else for that matter. Just not my choice. But do keep it friendly please.

I am 50 years old and WAY back there when I was a kid not even old enough to drive yet, my grand dad used TP filters. Swore by them. And put 4 motors in the same truck. So with that I know that those filters have been around longer than that, maybe longer than I have been around. Now I dont know if it was the filters fault, inferior TP, oil or the way he drove the thing, but I just wont use them on mine.

Now maybe they are just fine as a bypass filter, granddads TP filter was the MAIN filter. I inherited that truck with a dead engine, replaced the engine and put a real filter on it and drove it for several years thru Jr high and high school.

Its a good read that article. It lets the reader decide. I still decide not to use it. Let others decide on their own.

First saw a Frantz TP filter while working as a gas station attendant in 1963. In those days the attendant would fill the gas, wash the windshield and check the oil. I remember comenting on how clean the guys oil was and he got out of the car and showed me the Frantz filter and the roll of tp so they've been around a while. seems like the guy said it was a new deal that had just come out if I remember correctly. I don't want one but to each their own.

What kind of TP are you using....they say you should use the stuff they sell for like $10 for a 4 pack? Are you using their stuff or something from the grocery store?

Ok I must be an idiot , I'm in the military and if it has JP or Bio going through it chances are I have worked it. This includes planes , Age Equipment , cranes ,forklifts , GOV vehicles and list go's on.

Last time I seen a TP filter being used was in a 55 Chevy.



Do I really need to post all my oil analysis to prove to you the worth of "toilet paper" as a filtering media???!!!! My oil analysis come back analytically clean. Your ignorance shows by your suggestion that TP is floating around threw the system. JFYI, the military uses these types of filters because they are readily available and for the excellence of their filtering!!! But I won't argue with you........because it's Lent.....and I gave up arguing on the internet with folks like you!!! [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/tease[1].gif[/img] </div></div>

Ok I must be an idiot , I'm in the military and if it has JP or Bio or even MOGas going through it chances are I have worked it. This includes planes , Age Equipment , cranes ,forklifts , GOV vehicles and list go's on.

I'll even go out on a limb and call on all of the Navy,Marine, and the Army. I bet money you won't find any TP being used in the last 40 years.

Most all filters being used today are wire mesh or paper with micron ratings of 10 to 250.

So the BS flag is waving. [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/Lecture.gif[/img]

Give me a while Torqus Maximus, and I will find the links that I referenced that the military uses these type of filters. I'm not really 'puter literate, so give me a day or so!!!!

Do I really need to go on????? If a computer illiterate like myself can find this info........it would seem; by my way of thinking that y'all as more educated 'puter dickheads, would be able to find this info!!!!! Sorry for the harsh words, but facts are facts!!!!!!
