Amsoil Dual Bypass

I have been running this system for a while now, but am getting tired of 50.00 worth of filters, and having to order them. Not being able to change my oil when I have time, ect...
I was told by one of the "Dealers", (the guy who is in the pyramid scheme,) you be a dealer, and then get others to pay the 25.00 a year to be a "Preferred customer" and get a discount, They make money every time YOU order something,,,,,ect.... Blah Blah, Blah,,,,
That there were no filters that crossed, that the threads were Propitiatory to Amsoil,, I took him on his word for a while,, then called Amsoil.

DON'T get me wrong, I AM NOT dissing Amsoil,, just the way you have to go about purchasing the products,,,


Well, the tech department at Amsoil told me what filters cross over to the EA-026 and the BP-100.

These filters are off the shelf at O'Rileys PH8A and 3976A
I just put them onto the filter head for the Dual Bypass.
The PH 3976 is off a Cummins. The PH8 I am not sure what it's off of.

Now, I UNDERSTAND that one is not a "Bypass" filter, and may not filter down to the same microns,,, but if I keep my oil changed like I normally do, I fell it should be just fine.

Just an info note to anyone who is also tired of paying that much, and having to order them.

Thanks for the info Jim...which BTW...long time no see. Glad to see that you are still around and kicking.

The PH8A is one of the standard Ford filters IIRC. When I had my 5L 1/2 ton truck it used that filter. Fairly common on Ford motors I believe.

The PH8A is the Fram version of the Motorcraft FL1A, which is likely the most common filter Ford has ever used.. The list of Ford gasser V8's that filter doesn't fit is a whole lot shorter than the list of ones it does and it was also used in many 6 cyl engines, including the venerable 300...

Fits Dodge gassers also. NAPA has a bypass element now that the size is known, the PER1/PH8A is probably the most common size but it is full flow and so is just a leak on the oilpump volume. For the bypass benefit it needs to be a fine filter.

That's good info too, I guess I should replace the one with a BP.
That way it'll be doing it's job for the most part....

One thing I forgot, as long as the bypass filter is working it will come in close to the same temperature as the full flow. When it is cold it is plugged and needs a new one, on a 10 gallon oil change I always left the bypass on and changed it at 2 years or not getting hot. There is no loss of filtration on the full flow and finding it cold on the outbound just put it on the list when passing the home yard.
