Just curious, used oil filter inside pics ......

If any of you have the means I'd be curious on your next oil change to see them cut open and the paper filters spread apart to see what you find.

I'm just wondering if anyone has shavings from an oil pump.

My Melling oil pump was a bit worn and ground.

Post them up if anyone at all is interested.



EXAMPLE:

Thanks for the link.

But if you look at my filter you only see a used filter with no dicernable junk.

It wasn't til I cut the paper and spread it open that I saw any shavings. They gather at the inner crease because of the volume of oil pushing them inward.

My main reason for this thread is to see deep inside the filter.

Darn.

Heck guys, send them to me and I'll cut them. I just suspect people have more in their filters than they think.

The contents of my used oil filters are top secret. I put them in a black plastic bag and send them off to a government facility never to be seen by the general public again.

No hoist. The guy I had one from needed it. I'll have to wait. Considering taking the heads off anyway.
