Bypass oil filter for the Exy


Hi,
Years ago, in them days I had a GQ Patrol (love of my life), I considered getting a bypass oil filter of the type where part of the oil was continuously filtered through a number of toilet rolls. This meant that the oil was pure as new throughout its whole life, and only reason for oil changes was that the additives disappeared eventually. Which was not really good. This was also in them days when synthetic oils were 'orribly expensive. Like the Mobil 1, which burnt holes in the wallet.
Anyway, anyone who knows anything about such system that would suit the Exy? Mine is a T31 diesel.
Have heard the arguments that this is not necessary in modern engines, but anything that secures max oil flow to turbo charger, crank, and the rest surely is not a waste of time and money?
Oh, forgot. The guys using the bypass filters were mostly those who frequently went bush, especially in the big red. The filter kept that fine red dust at bay. And in them days it was still some space under the bonnet, so one had room for the gizmo.
Cheers, Jonn the wayward viking.

Re:


Hi,

I bought on from the US a few years ago, but I've not fitted it yet. I did have one on my Cortina in the 80's, and I fitted one to my 2003 Forrester, brilliant bit of gear.

and I spotted this Aussies place.

Re: Re:Bypass filter


Hi,
Think it was the Jackmaster filters with toilet rolls that were the mini-rage in the late '80s. Was told that the detergent in the oil was removed, but that seems to have been old wives' tales, because seemingly the extra litre of oil added each time would replenish the detergent. And also, the much cleaner oil needed less of it.
There are also som unfounded(?) rumours that oil break down after a while, but I remember that re-refined oil was used a lot here in Norway as it was alot cheaper. And that was before we had the synthetic oils.
See that there are some filters with built-in bypass filter, but these seem to be mainly for buses, heavy trucks, and a few of the big yank utes with 6+ litre engines.
But a neat little Jackmaster tailormade for the Exy diesel would be just great! Or a Franz one, but I rather buy Aussie!!

Re:


Keen to hear if there has been any success with fitting these systems up to the X Trail yet?
Wish I had of known about this set up a long time ago.. my old Land Rover oil burner could have really done with it! Haha
