    Greetings ~ I'm a Journeyman Mechanic ~ well I'm retired ``` Frantz use to sell his oil Filters ~ at Flee Markets ~ Installed for about $24 ~ that seemed like a lot ~ this was back in the 50s ~ I think ~ at the Rodium Drive in in Gardena ```

    Over the years I've collected a few ~ they really do a good job ```

    I'm not a spring chicken any more ~ anyway I have two daughters ~ I've put these filters on both their cars ~ Oldest daughter is 20 ~ we got a 1997 Suzuki Sidkick with a blown engine free ~ and I installed a used engine ~ with the help of a friend ~ I installed a Frantz that I had on the shelf ```
    Youngest daughter has a GMC Yukon ~ I put one on that as well ```

    The oil remains clean of particles and honey looking ~ on both ~ didn't change the oil on ether when installing the filter and watched as the filter made the oil cleaner and cleaner ```

    Just recently we did change the oil ~ To install "Mobil 1 in both cars ```

    I really think it's worth the time of instillation ``` Oil stays clean never turns to mud as will happen after a while ```

    I new corporation owns the Frantz today ~ they would like an arm and a leg for them now ~ but the filter can be gotten on Ebay or garage sales ~ Or ```

    I've read and heard people talking against them ~ but they're wrong in all they say ```

    Have you had any experience with this type of filter ~ what's you thoughts ```

    Hey why so hostile ~ what's the problem ~ lost the bickie ```


    Yes, Tuleman ~ I think multigrade oil should be changed at times ~ because of Shearing ```

    He isn't being hostile, he is being sarcastic. Lipshooter has a thread about longest time between oil changes.

    Hi ~ Yeh I think that's the thread I read a while back ``` The longer you oil is run ~ the more suspended abrasive bits of this and that are being pressed against bushings, bearings, rings and valves stems ```

    I remember a dolt who was made maintenance supervisor of Max Factor Plants ~ bragging how many miles he got out of a Chevy ~ in which he never changed oil or filter ~ what the fool didn't take into account was ~ How many miles could that Chevrolet have gone and still be going had it had it's tummy full of nice clean oil ```

    Oil doesn't wear out it gets burned and/or contaminated ```

    Anyway ~ there we have it ```

    Thanks for coming by ~ glad to meet you ```
