Ryco oil filters - warning

Went to change the oil & filter but the reputable Ryco was firm to screw on and got tighter the further it went on. Was well short of seating when I decided to take it back off to check the thread in the filter. Had not been cross threaded. Old filter went back on without any resistance.

Took the new one back to the retailer who pointed out they are now made in China. Replacement Ryco was gave exactly the same problem as the 1st. Visually it appeared to have a tapered thread compared to the old one which was made in Australia.

had to settle for a "Valvoline" filter (also made in China) to get the car off the ramps and back in the garage as there is not much open at 4.30pm on a sunday. It screwed on freely.

In future I will be buying genuine Ford as long as they are made here.

I am sure that if I forced the new Ryco on it would have buggered the thread on the block. Would Ryco be replacing the block and paying for the rebuild - I don't think so! Will be complaining direct to Ryco tommorrow. At least they will know why their Z9 sales have ground to a halt.

I had no troubles with the two new look Z9's I fitted. I screwed them up by hand.

Re: Ryco oil filters - warning

All things considered and the important job a filter is suppose to do my advice is do skimp, Same with fuel filter's as we all know the so called quality of fuel these day's a quality fuel filter is must as well, I am about to buy a system 1 oil filter and a magnafuel quickstar 270 with filter at the pump and another one before the carb, not cheap but should last me through another couple of engine's.

Re: Ryco oil filters - warning

You could always try accel filters or you could just do what I do and buy k&ns from the usa next time you buy something big from one of the usa companies .
When ever I buy something that I need from jegs I will throw in some filters at $12.00aus its not bad to have sitting on the bench

PS I have worked for a major aftermarket company here in WA and I have to say 9 times out of 10 mechanics and public want the cheapest products possible.
There is a reason they are cheap and its because they are cheap
