Good Afternoon folks smile

Bored out of my mind so figured I’d cut one of the 12 Tough guards I got off eBay. Allied Signal vintage. Looks good and media still good, very hard to tear. ADBV is very soft as well.

Enjoy the photos.

The mesh over the bypass inlet is a nice touch wonder why they don't do that anymore

Even though it looks fine..that looks like a pretty old virgin.
Can anybody decipher the date code?
OTOH, I would have no problems using that filter..

Well, I chatted online with tech person from FRAM. Gave part # to him; he said it is NOT FRAM part #

He did say it was Allied Signal part # though


All the boxes the filters were in said copyright 1997

Strange that the “tough guard” lettering in the last photo is so wonky. Are they all like that Stu?

The best guess is that the date code is the DDDY, So the 262nd day of 1997.

Maybe ... or the "F" could be the year code and 262 the Julian calendar day.

Same thing was pondered with this old Allied Signal oil filter. It has date code A21431. If the first letter is the year code, then that one was made 5 years before Stude's filters.
