Oil filter flow direction
« on: 24.11. 2019 21:35 »
Hi there does anyone know which way the oil is supposed to flow on a spin on cartridge i am making a spin on cartridge holder for my A7 and need to know if the oil should feed into the centre or the side?

Hi Bobsbikes,
If you look at the business end of the filter, you will see the thin rubber diaphragm beneath the outer holes. It is a non-return valve sortof. Oil must flow inwards through these outer holes. TT's sketch is great.
