    I was just wondering what everyone runs for an oil filter. I recently purchased a new filter thinking it would be a normal paper filter and when it came it was just a screen. Is that what everyone runs or are there other options?

    Sounds like the right filter, make sure ther are 4 holes on one end.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    The best part about the screen filters is that you can clean and re-use them, generally for several oil changes.

    Did they ever make a paper or fiberglass media filter more akin to what's on a car? The TW seems to be built to the sort of tolerances that the screen filter is A-OK, but it'd be cool to run something that filtered down to a lower micron size. However, the oil pump may not be designed to handle that.
