Do not use Fram filters. As a many year service manager at a large dealer, we had an issue with a particular motor with the rockers and cam being wiped out on an overhead cam motor. Tha factory investigated and found silicone cought in the oil supply passage that supplies the oil to the overhead cam. After additional investigation of over 100 of these customers with failed cam/followers the pattern was they all ran Fram oil filters. We then purchased several major brand and factory oil filters and cut them open. the Fram had the least filter material, no bypass valve or back flow valve and cardboard ends that were siliconed to the filter media. They were by far the poorest quality of all the filters we evaluated.
