If the filter was mounted vertical , the added length would hang much lower... but the filter is canted at a angle, so most of the additional length is going towards the rear of the truck, and not downwards.How much lower is it hanging? Won't interfere with anything?
Thanks Bob. Will look at it when I do the next oil change to prep for the new filter.The adapter is broached to accept a 1/2" drive ratchet. I put the adapter in the freezer overnight before installing.
Then thread it in until it bottoms out, and then I gave it a final "Umph".
I'm guessing about 20 ft/lbs.
There is no anti-drinback valve in the filter, but due to how the filter mount attaches to the engine block, it doesn't need one. The oil would have to flow uphill, to leave the filter.Now my Question: Does this Donaldson Filter incorporate a Backflow Preventer? If not, do you have an Oil Pressure Delay on startup?
Another reason.... to run this Donaldson.

Hey Wizzy.... I just checked your link. Amazon is trying to pull a click=bait move.
