Purolator and Napa filter design change
« Reply #105 on: January 12, 2018, 09:37:51 am »
Happy New Year.

I purchased a new Purolator L14610 to change my oil.  Have used them for years and the same filter works on my cars too  The new ones are red, but more importantly they are no longer concave inside.  I installed the filter, and the filter stops before the gasket is tight enough to work reliably(IMHO).  I then went to NAPA to get a 1356.  Same change on the inside, no longer concave.  I checked this against the current filters I have in the garage.  They are different.  I did not want to take the chance that they would leak so I purchased the NAPA specific filter for the Tenere.  Sure enough, still concave and works perfectly

Just wanted to share me experience with the new filters.  They may work, but I was not comfortable with the less than tight contact of the gasket.

I use the 1358, not the 1356, in a WIX box. Same filter I've used for 180,000 miles on two Yamahas. ::26::
