filter housing

Re: filter housing

I don't, I guess one would have to insert the filter slow enough to let the oil run into it? I just kick over several times with comp. release pulled after the oil change, don't know if it does any good, but it makes me feel better about not putting oil in the filter housing.

Re: filter housing

the idea is that the oil should be instantly there after an oil change. howeve, besides the rings there isn't a part in that engine that wouldn't last 20 minutes on idle (tickover) without an oil pump. it really is over cautious and i wouldn't worry about it. your engine will be under full pressure after about 1 second.
