I installed a spin on oil kit from Westfolk, best purchase so far for the deuce!! Quick oil pressure and you can run any number of filters you want.
As good - just more expensive.I ordered my oil filter kit from Jatonka this morning and will be converting all my fuel filters over to his kit this winter, everything I have read leads me to believe his kit is as good or better than any others out there, and this is by people a lot smarter than me!
I do not disagree at all. The "stock kind" are not what I was discussing though. I was just noting a price diference betwen the availible after market spin on kits.The most expensive are the stock kind. With all the drawbacks and ancient design, they hurt probably as much as they help in the long run.
There are A LOT of different filters you can run on Westfolk's oil adapters. I DID my research (let's not publicly suggest I haven't when you don't know what I have done).Personally, I prefer the filters that JATONKA recommends. His are true Diesel Truck Fleet high flow anti-drain back filters, not the big block chevy filters that the other guy is using.
Another factor is the size of the passage in the adapter that holds the filter base on and the flilter screws onto. The chevy filter threads onto a smaller 'nipple' and has a smaller diameter bore.
The bore if JATONKA's filter adapter is larger allowing a higher flow with less resistance. That may be a trivial difference to many, but since my truck is a sizeable investment for me, I do want to have the best choice for my lubrication system and a few dollars more is worth it as I see enough of an improvement in JATONKA's design.
I do not want to start a battle here, and there already are statements made in this thread that are somewhat slanted with no objectivity beyond price.
All I am saying is that I trust JATONKA that his adapters do what they should and I can get help and advice from John anytime I need it and he is a resource for far more than just Spin on Filter adapters. His experience alone is worth more than I can estimate.
I see the investment in JATONKA's adapters as being for more than just his kit.
You can do what you want, and I recommend you do your research as there are differences between these kits. I did my research and made my choice and I am very happy with the results.
