I purchased a couple vintage Amsoil ASF-44 filters from ebay. Does anyone know what the specs are/were? I couldn't find anything, via google. I believe they existed before the internet. I don't know years of manufacture? Like to know how they compare to EA-044 (now obsolete itself). No signs of rust.

Thanks in advance!









*Pics were upright when it was uploaded. Using a chromebook, sorry I couldn't rotate it.

Date code could be 10/17/71 ... ?

Does the box have any copyright date on it, that would give a clue too.

Date code could be similar to the Fram date code. If so, then could be the 177th day of 2000. Maybe Fram was making filters for Amsoil back then.
