Not sure if thast helped but food for thought. Keep us informed.
Ol' Ron, are you saying earlier engines have a better oiling system than the 8BA series? I'm not sure I understand. Please learn me sumthin'!

Well that's a good question, however, the relief valve is only one issue. Yes I do thing the relief valve at the end of the supply line is better than the 6ba one in the pump. But the 8ba has a better pump. Soooo, putting the 8ba pump in the eqrly block is a better system,

Ron I read an article recently on filters, I can't remember where but their conclusion after testing a number of different brands virtually came up with what you say....Fram is crap Wix is good.

Donaldson filters have been good quality. We use those also in our heavy trucks. Made in US.
