There was no startup rattle on this one so likely not much of a leak. Completely insignificant for a daily driver.

Just like in a couple of other thread going on right now, that air gap on the center tube doesn't matter as long as there is a 100% seal impression on the end cap, which there looks to be. I think a few people really don't understand what's going on here.

Too bad some people result to insulting instead of staying on the topic. Insulting people is not "winning." As we get older we usually get wiser.
My issue isn't sealing, that was another topic. It's the possibility of glue, which the pleats better have on their ends, cut off by the center tube and washed into the engine. Because excess glue isn't there now, doesn't mean it wasn't. I found loose glue inside my TG. So what is the black on the center tube, glue?

I'll never put another one of those glue shedding leaker byers on one of my cars again.

Still waiting for an explanation on how they bypass oil from that little air gap.

If you had an issue, why didn’t you document it in your own thread instead of taking this one hostage?
