  • So what's "clean?" That varies according to the equipment. Even new oil is not perfectly clean. The manufacturer may offer some minimums, but the basic truism according to Magnefine inventor Len Kelsey and others is, "No system ever failed from being too clean." Ford likes to see counts no higher than 18/15 and GM 19/16, and the import manufacturers prefer cleaner numbers than those. During decades of destructive testing, Eleftherakis and Khalil determined that around 19/16 or better is safe, but anything above 21/18 is a danger area in all transmissions.

    Magnefine
    The Magnefine is a small inline filter that comes with either a billet aluminum or Nylon 66 housing. It inserts into the cooler line and is offered to fit 5/16-, 3/8- and 1/2-inch OD line. It contains a 35-micron filter (nominal) but also a magnet. With approximately 51 percent of contaminant particles being ferrous, it will catch nearly all of those, regardless of size. A bypass valve prevents the unit from plugging up and decreasing cooler line flow. Boss Products recommends a 30,000-mile service interval for this filter.

    The Magnefine was developed in Australia by Boss Products and underwent significant testing there. When introduced to North America, it was offered both to the OEMs and the aftermarket. The aftermarket glommed on instantly. After putting them through a battery of qualification tests, Ford and Chrysler gave them part numbers, but some other OE manufacturers use them as well.

Magnefine--Your Source For Magnefine Inline Filters

I would also like to advise that there is a Knock Off in line filter that looks exactly like the MagneFine. This copy is Made in China and is sold on line and in some the same traditional distribution outlets, like the ones mentioned in the Forums.
