37Degree Filters Life Time Oil Filter
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,
Wanted to find out if anyone has any experiance with the 37Degree Filters life time oil filters. They look like the same type of stainless wire mesh filter that is used on aircraft jet engines. I like the fact that I can diassemble it and inspect it at oil change time or when I want to just check it.

Unless you are part of the battery team.

Nope not apart of the battery team. :grouphug: Batteries made by YUASA in Japan.

Japanese safety investigators said Wednesday they found improper wiring for a lithium-ion battery aboard an All Nippon Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner that made an emergency landing in Japan last month.

As far as I know the NTSB and the FAA can find no problems with the 787. :happyanim:

I wouldn't mess with it. An ACDelco pf48 will work perfect. Stick in a magnetic drainplug, you'll know if there is ever a problem.

Two minutes with a hacksaw I can inspect the filter media in a pf48. Not to mention the warranty issue. That thing causes a problem, goodbye 100k engine warranty.

...but the flying public doesn't interact with suppliers. They are in a plane, they trust the plane manufacurer has validated all parts from all suppliers.

Just like if an xyz brand gas pedal sticks in a Toyota. The next of kin will be sueing the pants off Toyota, not the suppliers involved.

Russell,
Thanks for the reply, that is a good point about the warranty. How do you know if any regular filter Fram, Napa or other would or would not void the warranty?

I found this on their web site:
37Degree Filters™ filters meet or exceed all manufacturers’ minimum requirements. The installation of a 37Degree Filters™ product does not impact the vehicle’s factory warranty. The Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, along with US Federal Trade Commission Act and the Clean Air Act, states in Title 15, United States Code, Section 2302, subdivision (c): a manufacturer may not require the use of any brand of oil filter (or any other part) unless that manufacturer provides that said item free of charge under the terms of that warranty.

Also what you state about the flying public is very true, we are having to deal with that as well. The 787 pushes the technology envelope in a lot places. But I know as time goes by the industry and the public will love flying this plane. :thumbup:

Filter will not fit
 
Thought I would update this, I contacted 37 Degrees and the filter is to long. I will not fit with the ZL1 belly pan.... Well I guess I will keep using the NAPA Platinums....
