Well there we have it. Straight from Baldwin. All the filters delco, parker/racor, and the Baldwin will be the newer open design without the secondary filter in place. There never where any fakes. Nor one design since the change to BF46062. They changed it in June. And I was wrong about the quality control guy.
I will try to find a new filter local of the old design and wait a see how the filter shootout goes with these new open design Baldwin's. My
Guess is the bean counters have gone mess up for parker/racor.
