Oil filter magnets

Aight,

Before this turns into a raging sword fight, I'm wondering what y'all's opinion of oil filter magnets are, if you have oil analysis reports all the better. I have the maghytec diff covers and see what the magnets in those pick up and wonder how big a difference they would make on engine oil, the best looking one I've seen is filtermag, but is kinda pricey and not so sure I believe a company's own testing, would rather see third party verification (the engineer in me). If anyone has experience with filtermag or any magnets on the oil filtration system please let me know how it works for you.


Thanks in advance

Re: Oil filter magnets

Allison uses a magnet in the transmission spin-on, has one magnet on the trans drain plug, so does the 4r100 i believe. older gm's have round washer type magnets in the trans pan. most all jap cars, and newer gm's have engine oil magnet drain plugs also. it seems like that would be the preferred location.

Re: Oil filter magnets

I have small magnets on all my spin-on filters. Everytime I change the filters I use the drimal and cut open the filter at the pt of the magnet and always fined some very small metal particles. Which in my eyes, the magnet did it's job and trapped the particles, and kept them from some how from passing through the filter and flowing back into my motor. Magnets are cheap, what can it hurt? IMO it's a good idea.

Old hard drive magnets are pretty strong.

Re: Oil filter magnets

I tried to mail some once. The post office got pissed at me. Even packed in a cushioned envelope, it stuck to their machines and caused a minor traffic jam.
