Is it worth the risk to use a cheaper filter? I know from experience that a cheaper filter is generaly cheaper made and all you have to do is cut one open to see.
A family friend by the name of Bob sold his old Alfa sedan to someone who was going to use the engine in a vintage racer, and when the new owner pulled the head at 100K miles, the original factory hone marks could still be seen on the cylinder walls. Bob attributed this amazing lack of wear in part to his use of Baldwin filters.

That sold me on them.

Some aftermarket filters I would hesitate to use, but the ones I've seen (& some cases installed) on industrial equipment, equipment that has to be reliable & durable I have no problem buying in preference to the manufacturers own filter. These include Baldwin & Donaldson.

I put this question out there primarily for the information sought, secondarily for a little interaction with those who share an interest of mine.

If all I wanted to do was find information, I'd have Googled it, harvested what I needed, & been on my way.

Kind of like I did with the filter numbers I posted above.

Re: Cross Ref for Oil Filter?

Why not just use my sticky thread for finding aftermarket lubricants?.....
http://www.rzrforums.net/engine-driv...lt-part-s.html

FYI.....Different filter manufacturers use different particle size ratings to figure their filtering capabilites so unless you understand it all it means NOTHING to the average joe.

Below is from perfromanceoiltechnology.com.....

Beta Ratings
The Beta rating of an oil filter is a measure of the particle capture percentage in a special test designed and specified by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and is referred to as test SAE J1858. The test measures the volume of particles that pass through a filter in a single pass vs. the total volume of particles introduced into the filtration system prior to entering the oil filter.
The percent efficiency of a filter with a specific beta rating is determined by subtracting one from the Beta rating, then divide the result by the actual Beta rating and multiplying the result of the division by 100. The final value determines exactly what percentage efficient a certain oil filter is at removing a specific size of contaminant.

Beta rating tests are the best way to accurately compare oil filter performance due to the fact that the test measures the specific oil filter efficiencies at specific particle sizes. Comparing filter micron ratings without knowing the efficiency at a specific micron particle size is meaningless.

To be honest, I didn't see it before I posted up.

Thanks, though.

Re: Cross Ref for Oil Filter?

Nailhead had mentioned using a Baldwin filter. They are one of the cheapest filters out there and that is because they are made cheap. I work for a company that is in the construction rental business. We sell Baldwin only because it is cheap and people like cheap. I will not use Baldwin. I have see Baldwin air filters that do not seal correctly and the rep was clueless as to why they were being made that way of if they would even correct the problem. I have see hydraulic filters burst open. If you cut a Baldwin oil filter open you will fined about a third less pleats and the paper is not of the same quality as an higher dollar filter. I would accredit Bobs lack of wear due to good maintenance and better metals used today than in older cars. Filters that I consider good or OEM , Wix, (NAPA. Carquest, Both made by Wix ) Donaldson air filters And Fleetgaurd which is my choice pick. Just my opinion my background is a diesel mechanic for over 30 years. Not saying that makes me right. I am drawing my opinion from my experience. I would not try and save $6 on a filter I did not know was going to keep my $2000 engine safe

This I did not know.

I don't think I'll be using them any time soon.

I think Bob probably did change the oil in that car more frequently than required, but it was an early '70's engine, so it wasn't nearly modern. It was, however, a wet-sleeve engine & I've heard the sleeves are harder than regular cast iron.

Thanks for the info.
