[DML] Oil filter options (was Specifications on Purflux LS 410C)

Hi Marc,

It's certainly not a waste of time at all to investigate a good  
filter to use.  FWIW, I've been using genuine Volvo filters on my  
DeLorean ever since I bought my car (a bit over 9 years and 42,000  
miles).  I think that I started using it because that's what was on  
my car when I bought it.  Despite the claims that the Purflux is the  
best (and I don't think anyone can argue that it's not a fine  
filter), I just kept using the Volvo filter and intend to keep doing  
so, unless I determine a compelling and irrefutable reason not to.  I  
admit though, that I have not looked-up the specs for this filter.   
So, I'll chalk it up as "road test" style experiment for everyone.   
If my engine goes, I'll just fix it.  So far I haven't even had a  
reason to open it up.

At any rate, this filter has been working for me for years.  It fits  
just fine (comes close to the oil sender, but that doesn't  
interfere), it has an anti-drain and bypass valve (don't know at what  
pressure it bypasses, though), and costs around $10 at the dealer and  
is available through some Internet shops too.

Here are some pictures of the insides of a used one.  It's clearly  
not as slick as the Purflux, but has more filter paper than many of  
the others out there.  I think Mann is Volvo's supplier, but don't  
quote me on that.


If anyone has the real specs on this OEM filter, I'd like to know.   
So far a little Googling has yielded nothing.
