Oil Filter Addition to 1939 Buick


Recommended Posts

I have a 1939 Buick Series 90 and find that the add-on oil filter (AC Kleer Kleen) was never installed on my car. I'd like to get some members' feedback on whether I should have this filter installed. I don't plan to drive the car very much (1000-2000 miles per year) and will change the oil every season.

My personal view is you should try to keep the car as original as possible with the exception of seatbelts and other safety items. Was the oil filter assembly you have a factory authorized accessory? If so, I would install it even if you plan to change the oil every season. Given that it is a side flow system, that is still better than nothing. It was common practice to change the filter about every 4th oil change.

Good luck.
