  • filter overflow

    Just did some maintenance on my 76 started it up and decided to take the cap off the oil tank to check return and the filter overflowed all over.Square type tank in tank filter.Is this normal or the result of cheap ass chinee filter?Filter has less than 1k miles.

    Normal... the oil Must be forced thru the filter...Like any Filter...
    BTW... If the exercise is to View the return oil... remove filter... still a mess... just not quite as much!!!
