When it comes to diesel engines, their working components, and I mean all of them, can get expensive. We have all heard it. “Diesel’s are just too expensive to fix!” While that may be true in some cases, these expensive repairs can be avoided by simply performing proper maintenance with good, quality parts and products. System 1 Filters sees the need for better filtration on diesel-powered machines and they are here to help.
Proper oil filtration is a key component to ensuring a long service life for diesel engines. System 1 Filters offers a full complement of highly effective, money-saving cleanable and re-usable spin-on units for a wide range of diesel applications including the latest Ford Power Stroke, Chevrolet/GMC Duramax, and Ram/Cummins light truck engines.
The housings are CNC-machined from billet aluminum in System 1’s Tulare, CA manufacturing facility, black anodized, and fitted with 35-micron stainless steel mesh elements. A 75-micron element is optional for the larger sizes.
System 1’s 600 Series filters measure 3-3/4-inches in diameter, are 5-3/4-inches long, and intended for light truck use. The larger 800 Series, at 5-inches in diameter and 9-1/4-inches length, can be employed in big rig trucks, farming, and industrial equipment, as well as marine applications. For extreme duty use, including Tractor Pulling, System 1’s 900 Series at 12-1/4-inches long provides maximum filtration.
Cleaning the element is easily accomplished using readily available materials and saves money in the long run compared to disposable filters. The ability to inspect the oil and catch potential engine problems early-on can also pay dividends. If you’re suspecting an issue with the oil or the objects within, you can simply check your oil filter out for debris. This can save you immensely.

I also think that being able to clean and reuse the filter would save you money and makes for a quick, in-the-garage project, you know? What are your thoughts on these?
