∑ The can height of the two WIX filters was swapped in the merc.xls file. This has been corrected.

November 19, 2003

∑ The original publication had filter area half of what it should have been. This has been corrected in this document as well as the merc.xls file. The area was indicated as one pleat times the number of pleats and it should have been times two again since each pleat count has two sides to it. Since everything was half of what it should have been, it still kept the comparisons between these filters equal.

Additional Notes

∑ The Merc 35-802885T has a twin sister as the Quicksilver 35-802885Q. It should be an identical filter only with a white canister.

∑ The Pennzoil Z3 filter is the cross reference to the Merc 35-802885T. The outside baseplate is exactly the same as a Fram Extra Guard. If you are using the Z3 filter, expect it to be identical to the PH6606 filter (smaller version of the PH5).

∑ Baldwin also has a cross-reference to the Merc 35-802885T (short canister). It is the Baldwin B360. It is higher priced (about $9) than the Baldwin 1428 that is compared here.

∑ One source on the web for Baldwin filters is http://www.adiesel.com/. If you canít find Baldwin filters locally, adiesel.com may be an option.

The following information is provided by the respective manufacturer technical support:
Baldwin B1428
∑ 6 micron

∑ 150 psi working pressure

∑ 89.35% average efficiency

∑ 391.1 sq. in. of media

∑ Flow rates:

o 2 gpm @ 3 psid

o 5 gpm @ 5 psid

o 9 gpm @10 psid

o 11.5 gpm @ 15 psid

o 12 gpm @ 16 psid

Hastings LF279
∑ 8 micron

∑ 80 psi working pressure

∑ 90.58% average efficiency

∑ 476.27 sq. in. of media (note: I have asked Hastings about this discrepancy with my data; perhaps it is a typo on their part and should be 276?)

∑ Flow rates:

o 2 gpm @ 3 psid

o 5 gpm @ 5 psid

o 9 gpm @10 psid

o 11.5 gpm @ 15 psid

o 12 gpm @ 16 psid

Fram PH5 EG and TG
∑ micron rating = PH5 and TG5 are nominal 10 micron

∑ flow rating = PH5 & TG5 have a flow rate of 3 GPM

∑ efficiency rating = PH5 (96% Single Pass Efficiency) & TG5 (98% SPE)

∑ filter area = Engineering design specification not for publication

AC Delco 1218
∑ With regards to your inquiry about ACDelco PF1218 oil filter, we are unable to locate the technical information in our records. Please contact an ACDelco Retailer, Service Center or a GM Dealer in your area for information, as they may be in a position to assist you.

FRAM is a 4-letter word for a reason. I would not install one on my weedeater. Several years ago, several people got killed on motorcycles when their FRAM filters came apart and coated the rear tire(s) with oil.

Napa Wix Racing is the best you can buy. Mercury and Mobil1 are right up there as well.

Wix are good. I use Mobil 1 on my boat.

I'd stay far, far away from Fram.

I have had problems with Fram 4 also. On 2 different boats.

I use AC Delco PF35. No problems,

I don't recommend the Mobil 1's if you run high oil pressures. They may filter good but mine collapsed on the first run.

I just bought Open72 15 of them. I can prob still get them at that price if you want? You should be able to at least get them at 14.95 I have a buddy that's a manager at Napa and we find which busness [like the City of Jackson acc} gets the biggest discount and I just pay cash on that account.it helps me and them with volume Napa's cost showed to be 9 something.
