As of today, Restoration Supply Company now owns and manufactures Gano Filters. The Gano Auto Coolant Filter is a patented device that prevents radiator and coolant system damage. It removes rust scale, gasket material and other foreign particles from the cooling system before they can build-up and clog or block radiator cooling tubes. Here is a brief overview for those of you who are unfamiliar with the product. [TABLE=width: 740, align: center] <tbody>[TR] [TD=align: left]The Gano Filter is available in three sizes and three different material housings.

Approximately 2.75” long, it requires two inches of the hoses to be removed. With the engine running, turbulence in the coolant flow can be observed. The velocity of the flow can indicate the proper operation of the thermostat and water pump. Bubbles in the coolant could suggest cavitation from the water pump or leaking head gasket and over heating. With the engine stopped, an empty filter would indicate low coolant. The latter feature is especially useful when the engine is hot and removal of the radiator cap could be dangerous.

Especially suited for vehicles with high performance engines, and those used in racing. It performs the same function, as the clear model but dose not allow for the observation of the coolant. The particles trapped will not be visible and there fore will necessitate the removal of the filter to check its contents. 2 ¼;” long may be inserted completely inside hose.

Found this web page with extensive info on oil filters / filter housings. Ok, so this guy's working on Chevrolet, but the page only uses photos of NOS parts. This showed me good examples of the shades of orange & blue needed + clarifies that the hold-down screw on top is natural metal, not painted. http://ddautoparts.home.mindspring.com/oilfilter.htm
Hello, I have a 39 Packard SU8 and it has a spin on oil filter adapter setup. 1st time changing the oil and the thread stripped on the filter cartridge. By the time I fixed that I couldn't be certain the direction of the oil filter. The canister sits between the front line near the fan and back line near the dipstick, but I though the filter portion attached to the front line. Logic tells me maybe it doesnt matter with this setup, but the last thing I want to do is set it up wrong. I've attached 2 pictures. Any help is appreciated.
