Is that a Franz filter?

My dad ran one on his truck for years.

No, it's similar to the Franz but better constructed. It's a Model M-30 air compressor filter converted into an oil filter. It is much less likely to leak than the Franz filter and is exactly the right size for putting the entire roll of Scott's 1000 toilet paper.

Here's a link to this filter. Filters down to .01 micron.

What don't you like about the Frantz?

How do you meter how much oil goes through the bypass?

I had a hard time keeping the Franz filter leak free. It had a tendency to leak around the bottom rubber gasket.

Oil flow is controlled by an orifice.

Is the orifice part of the filter already or did you add something to it? I'm wanting to do a bypass filter and that looks like a great option, especially since it can just take a full roll of TP. So any other details you have on the install?
