Re: My first oil change

[quote="bapos"]If your filter screws in vertically .... you may want to prefill it either half way full or part of the way. It just helps with dry starts. If its horizontally then don't worry about it. quote]
I know a few people who pre fill their filters but we learned in school to never pre fill filters. You never want to send un filtered oil through your engine.

Re: My first oil change

Not sure how sending brand new oil out of a bottle through a system would be a bad thing? Last time I checked pumping an oil pump dry is not good either? Some oil filters hold a lot of oil. My 366 gasser has a 2 quarts of oil and it vertical so it makes sense to me to prefill it?
Here is my school bus conversion thread

Re: My first oil change

If its vertical, I would pre-fill it.
