Check this out. Think any of it is still usable??

Some old Sears Spectrum 10w40... in cans. I believe this is from the early 80's. I have at least 16 cans.


Next is a couple of old KMart K1 oil filters. No idea what these would fit. Check out the price: $1.86, discounted to $1.47!!


Last is a Purolater PureONE filter with a 1996 date. I like the cross-reference right on the box! This must be one of my old leftovers from high school with my 51 pickup's old Buick motor.



Anyways, thought you'd get a kick out of this. If it's in the wrong place, please feel free to delete or move.

Thanks!!

I'd have no issue using the oil for 3000 miles, or the '96 Purolator Pure One for 5-6000.

The K-1 filters I'd cut and take pictures...

SAVE 'EM! Don't cut the filter. Put them up on your shelf. They are your dads.

You're NOT SURE about the K1 oil filter and it MIGHT have been for your '51???

You're a disgrace to BITOG. ALL the filter numbers of that truck should be in your brain FOREVER!

As the word "Rosebud" exited Citizen Kane's lips as he died, you should mutter these numbers.

No... I have no idea what the K1 was for as it was before my time. I was speaking about the Purolator.

I just bought a bunch of 10w40 on clearance at AZ because every one believes that its not fuel efficient (energy conserving).

That oil must be from the energy crisis era.

About the only thing Sears 10W40 is more fuel efficient than is Brad Penn Nitro 70 smile I bet the liquid doesn't even shake in the can... it's like Crisco in there

Ahh grasshopper, did you miss the "all weather" label? This was our WINTER oil in its day.

Cardboard can of oil goes back a ways.

The K-1 was for Ford IIRC. (PH-8)

Sears Spectrum 10W-40 is all I used back in the 70s. And all cars got 6K OCI as the manual recommended.

Was that the large size used by many Chrysler, as well as Ford, engines of the '60s? My Mazda went through many Kmart (repainted Purolator) filters in the '80s. They were sometimes on sale for $1. About 18K (3 oil changes) each, no problems. Cardboard-and-steel cans prevailed through about the mid-80s, I think.

=1 I used this in the mid 70's in my Ford Elite with the 350 v-8. One time I went into Sears to get some oil and filter and the guy asked me if I had it in the crankcase. When I told him yes he gave me a new filter and 10 qts of the 10-40 free. He said some of their filters did not have the internal screen in them and to change the oil?filter for a short OCI then change it again. When I changed it, sure enough inside the filter was a coil spring type wire and cotton like filter material. Didn't look like it had come loose but I worried about that stuff being in the engine the rest of my ownership, and I kept the car for some time. Never had any problems.
