Went to fit a $$$$ RYCO ST; synthetic media (99.8% @ 25 micron, the STD ones are 40um) filter the other day... Binned it! As I always pre fill filters where possible I noticed the inner crimp beyond the ADV and just inside the seal had oil flow up through it!!
The ADV was sealing, but rendered useless by the failed construction!

Seems I was not the only one see: http://www.supercheapauto.com.au/Product...ew-list-anchor. I think this guy would be stunned if he knew what bearing/crank damage was occurring.

Emailed RYCO be interesting if I get an intelligent response (I'm expecting a marketing one)....

Email reply from RYCO so far.. Not fobbed off..
Engineer wants to have a look at it as all filters are pressure tested. Yes works for me so far.. Not sure that test covers an internal leak though...
Watch this space I guess.... shrug
