Re: Fram Oil Filter for Perkins

My 4108 had the filter mounted vertically with the open end on the bottom, so an anti-drainback valve was needed to keep oil in the filter when the engine was off. Not all filters have this valve, but the Perkins filters do.

Re: Fram Oil Filter for Perkins

i found the fram and wix are just as usable as any other--no problems with my perkins 4-108 aside from dirty fuel .......
