|Oil filter failure|
Hello. This is my first time posting on this site.P I wanted to spread the word out about my experience with a case new holland (cnh)oil filter failing. It was the first one we have ever bought and was the first oil filter on my grandpa's tractor after a complete engine overhaul.PFirst i will give some background. His tractor is a 1964 Case 530 CK with the 188 diesel engine, Case-o-matic transmission and model 32 backhoe and model 32 loader. He has had it since i was a little kid and i used to play on it. I have always loved heavy equipment sine i was a little kid. When i turned 21 i got into carb rebuilding on small engines as none of our snowblowers ran. We live in suburban detroit and we got a record setting snowfall that winter. 90 inches!!! We got talking about machines and he told me his backhoe never ran right since he had it. It lacked power and his oil level would rise while running the backhoe for extended periods. He said the crankcase was filling with diesel fuel. I read a little bit and found out it could be the fuel injector pump umbrella seals or a non firing cylinder. So got curious and took the valve cover off. The first cylinder had one severely bent and one completely broken pushrod. Thus the first cylinder was dead and the fuel injected was not being burnt, making its way past the piston rings into the crankcase.PAfter a 6 month long complete engine overhaul and fixing a few other things on the tractor including a new paintjob with original oem case power red, yellow, black and white, we got it running and running good!!! PIts been a year since december 2014, when the old beast started up for the first time in 10 years. I went to change the case oem oil filter we put on there. I pulled it out of the garage, let it warm up and opened the oil pan drain plug. When the black oil was done draining i noticed some mesh like material hanging out of the drain hole. I instantly knew it was the fine mesh that filters fine particles in the oil filter. I spent that day picking a paper towel square sized amount of fine mesh filter material out of the hole in the oil pan. Most of it was caught on the oil pickup screen. It must have came undone and squeezed its way out of the crank bearings or cam bearings and into the sump. I dont know how it didnt block off any oil flow by getting caught in the oil passages. Oil psi is and has always been 65- 80 psi throughout the whole time i was running it with the case filter.P I put a fram filter identical to the case that has cross referenced part numbers at our local advance auto. I will not buy a case oil filter again. I believe the problem is the case filter was made in mexico. Fram filters are made in usa. Oil pressure is still 65-80 psi. We really lucked out. Putting an oem filter on believing it would be the best filter for the engine almost ruined all our hard work and money we spent.PI just want to know if anyone else has run into this and what your opinions are. Thanks.
