You noticed that AC crapped out too?  At one time they
were among the best filters.  Heavy metal casing, hugh
filter area.  K-mart used to have rebates for them
where you could get them for $1.25 ea.  I didn't
realize who started making them, I just knew they
changed.  The standard Fram filters suck in our apps.
I don't think they have the anti-drainback feature and
the lifter know it on startup.
