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

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.
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.
