Fram XG7317, Looked into filter before pouring oil in and saw this, at first I thought it was some sort of epoxy used during manufacturing.

Stuck a new chopstick in to check it out and it's an oily residue?

Yes its normal, it is an anti corrosive.

motorking covered it when he worked for FRAM and its been discussed a number of times.

Thanks

BTW, there wouldn't happen to be a VOA on this "anti corrosive" would there?

Most likely photo parallax. No way for the ADBV to get off center the way it's designed top fit in the center tube, and end cap has centering tabs for the whole assembly in the can. Obviously, the camera is not looking dead nuts down the centerline of the tube.

The Fram adbv sits deep in and the picture is at an angle. The centering is excellent on the end cap it’s the base hump combined with off center holes too near the seal flat that is hokey imo.
The excess lube on the inside isn’t exactly repelling dust but is better than rust.

is it dusty?
is it rusty?
is it of center?
running to the end zone with no ball, just because you never got to.

The least you could do is answer the questions - since you started the thread.

I noticed what turned out to be an oily residue in the can and having not been in on what must have been a quite spirited conversation
about the topic simply wondered if it was normal. I was quickly informed it was in fact normal, even though I have never noticed this before.

The residue is a dirt magnet and it all goes to the main bearings. The open end is exposed to whatever is getting into the box in the room. It's about something as much as new oil in the center tube is bad. It has absolutely nothing to do with the filter being a Fram.
