It's cool you have access to all of these used oil filters to cut open. If any Purolators come through, need to cut those open for sure to look for torn media.

Broaching info I'm sure that part is plastic and tapered because it was injection molded. Injection molding is cheap and it can have a lot of details. It it tapered to use less material and makes it easier to get out of the mold. I'd make it out

Nobody is down on using nitrogen to inflate tires. We're only down on paying for it. I'll take free 100% dry nitrogen any day. There are plenty of air driers available at moderate cost for air compressors. Somebody in the shop has to care enough

Three of the ashless (non-metallic) additives to be introduced early on were the sulferized minerals oils, the VIIs, the GMO friction modifiers, and the succinimide dispersants, in that approximate order.

That doesnt sound like a rod knock to me. A rod knock produces a very deep hard knocking sound. Not sure what that noise is but I don't think it is a rod knock. Also if you had a rod knock you would have a ton of wear metals in the oil.
