If nothing is eventful, I usually do not make a cut & post but, someone wanted to see some recent eCore cut and posts. smile
Enjoy!!! smile

Oil change date: 04/08/2017
Miles on vehicle: 170504
Miles in service: 3231
Days in service: 56
Oil: Motorcraft Premium Synthetic Blend 5W30
Filter: Champ PH820

No filter issues to report. Filter performed as advertised.


Champ Lab PH820 filter label.


Date code: 011514ES1 08:34 January 15, 2014 08:34 am


Base plate exterior.


Base plate interior. I do not believe the rust was there when I cut it on the change date.


Combo valve on the filter element. ADBV facing away from the filter element.


Combo vale positioned on the base plate.


Combo valve end of the filter element.


Leaf spring.


Element view #1.


Element view #2.


Element view #3. This is about as crooked as I have seen the pleats on an eCore.


This filter seems to have a bit more carbon in the depths of the pleats. This would be expected as this filter came from an earlier time in a clean up phase.

I think they all look good for an entry level / jobber filter.
