The Scotts was about 80 bucks. I pop the retainer spring out pull the filter spray with brake clean, blow with compressed air and reassemble. All in all, it take me about 2 min to clean. Its got a hex nut machined into the case for easy tightening or loosing and also works good for safety wiring. Now that I have a brand new motor and need to break it in. I'm not wasting filters.
My shop supplies are negligable, since I use it for all my vehicles. To each is own. If you want to pay someone, cause you dont want to get some oil on your hands, more power to ya. I prefer doing it myself, I enjoy wrenching and get the satisfaction that its done right, oh yeah and I save a lot of money by doing it myself.
In a Michigan State University study that ranked 34 major countries by their citizens'
acceptance of the theory of evolution, the United States ranked second to last (thank you, Turkey). 39%
of our adult population rejects the concept.
