    On TP filters: don't even think about it!! JI Case used something similiar for a hydraulic system filter. It would disintigrate and pieces would get stuck in the system, especially the check valve, so that the implement wouldn't stay where you put it. Of course a lot of farmers would opt to save $ by ignoring scheduled maintainance. and then cuss the machine when it failed. I found a Fram add on filter on a 55 6 cyl at the junk yard for $5. Took it home, cleaned it up, and put it on just as it came off. Worked fine.

          ...now you’re in my wheelhouse - as a chemist for the tissue industry! (See shameless pic of yours truly in front of a 1.5 ton roll of paper towel).

          Wood fibers dissolved in water are weak but when you drain-press-dry the water away it makes it very strong. Crazy, I know.

          Oils have zero effect on breaking fiber-fiber bonds so believe it or not TP could actually be used! But papertowel is much stronger and would be the tissue of choice.

              Like anything you have to PROPERLY use it!

              In 60 Years, running Three of these Frantz Oil Cleaners, none have lost a trice of paper due to the built-in safeguards against that EVER happening and of course Proper packing and 2000 Mile Tissue Changes with a full Qt. of Oil added due to the fact they absorb a full Quart.

              Saved one engine 2000 Miles from home by filtering out the water from a leaking head gasket, and drove our '57 Parkview home.
              Testimonials like this are true and quite plentiful of the outstanding performance of a Frantz when used properly, which not everyone did.

                Is the center (threaded) post the return (outlet) on a later spin-on partial flow setup?

                  Give that man a cigar! center post is the oil return to the engine,dirty oil comes in from a smallish passage in the filter base near the outside edge and enters the filter through that ring of holes around center threaded mounting hole. some filters have a tiny hole built in to the center passage, fram or champion cant remember for sure.

                      I believe the one I was using before stated to use single ply, but now they recommend their new media.

                        Since this String is about Frantz Tissue Paper Filters, that would be reverse of a Factory Type Filter, but apparently it is just Forum Topic DRIFT to Stock Filters?

                        On a Frantz Oil Cleaner, the Oil enters the Center Post and flows over the Top, and then is forced down though 4 1/2 inches of many layers of "Filtering Media." removing particles down to 1-2 Microns.
