Hot dam NOT a FRAM ? --remember ?. When I first stumbled in to this super forum for Old Rabbit owners. (in my case Old Rabbit and Old owner)-I took a lot of Texas Triple A --(AAA) and static. (a pun). Chuck Carnohan and others came to my rescue. ----so I am still here. and still wears the Hillbilly Title with pride. First in a Rabbit diesel cleanliness IS godliness ---read my lips. Some years ago I was in charge (as a janitor) of OIL testing and cleaning. Major Corporation.----SO --well that gave me access to some very fancy equipment.---and a genuine Chemist at my every wish. Being a relentless experimenter did I learn something ? --- bet your sweet ass. -----A filter is simply a "Screen" --the smaller the holes ? NO NO NO absolutely wrong. ----Feyman : Observe --Reason-Experiment. ----and that is what I did. Turns out that a lot of particulate is removed by the electricity in the Fuel and the LUBE oil. yes "STATIC" This is where I owe Doyt Echelberger a lot ---it is part of PHYSICS. ---ok OK I know some of you are University stuff----but remember Hagar is NOT.-------So to treat your Rabbit good --? well you need a smattering of Physics-Chemistry-Electricity- and BIG dose of analytical thinking. The Electrical properties of the Oil is very important to how the filtering system works.----Some syn -oils are excellent in that department.---Ask your wife what she knows about STATIC cling ---then you will know I am correct. ---. Hagar. PS : I still like the word CLEANING best.
