Any further conversation on this? :) I have to change the oil on my '59 as soon as the weather warms and changing the filter seems to add exponentially to the difficulty of the job. You say that they are "almost" not worth the effort to change. Does that mean they get changed reluctantly, or that you'd actually go ahead and change the fluid and not change the filter? :)

Most have probably never been changed in the last 30+ years or so. As a result, they are long since clogged and are in bypass mode.

I change mine.

Of course you will want to want to thoroughly clean the suction strainer as well.

Pulling the top cover on a 2000-4000 SOS is not a easy job for the first timer. Myself, I'd have no problem, and if it was mine, I likely would replace the filter, even as worthless as it seems to be, simply because I've done this job numerous times.

If you've never removed the top cover on one of these before, you'll likely end up cursing the engineer who ever designed a filter in that location if you do end up doing the job. On top of that, once you study where the filter sits in the system, and realize that it only filters a fraction of the total pump oil flow, there's a good chance you'll really feel that the job was a lot of time and frustration for nothing.
