I figured that was the case but I only rememberd the one about the agco filters untel you said napa and the wix & carqwest have the same part # on the filter the box is diferant that is it

I am not exacly sure but dont the oil split 2 ways one to the filter and back to the pan and one every where else and if the filter dose not have back bresher the oil gose the easy way threw the filter and in the pan insted of every where else Thanks Thomas

yes, only about 15% of the oil is to go thru the filter and back to sump. the rest 85% goes thru the motor and bearings for lube. if you use the paper filter and it has very little restriction, you will get 50% flow thru the filter back to sump, which will cut the circulating pressure down to a few pounds, possibly 0. the cloth packed filter has proper backpressure. make sure the 1/4 inch tube that slides into the filter is present and has the proper two small holes.

How can the filter drop theoil presure to 0 when the Allis system only filters a portion of the oil the pump is pumping?

Could you please explain.

I know that my father has a WIX on his CA and his B and he has oil pressure. Don't know whether they are paper or not.

Thomas, It doesn't matter what brand the filter is as long as it is cotton inside. It should have a wooden stick that you pull out before you install the filter. If the filter is a paper mesh, you're oil pressure will be almost zero...don't use the paper filters. I used to use Wix and the ones they made were cotton and worked good. The paper filter that i bought and did not work was Carquest. Thanks, KEnt

Thomas, Some of the fellows here on the forum said not to use the Napa filters. Napa filters are made by Wix, so I would imagine that the filter would have the same contruction inside as the Napa. The new revised filter apparentely knocks down the oil pressure on the older machines..

i had a problem with the wix filters, i could get no oil pressure, i went to agco alis and got one from them and i had good pressure, don,t know what the difference is but i,m going to stick with the agco alis not worth the hassle with the others i had it happened on two of them. don
