AMSOIL Filter problems..

According to AMSOIL's web sight their 25K mile filter for my 02 7.3L is an EAo99. Well that dog don't hunt, I have a few quarts of oil on the driveway to prove it.. The NAPA Gold 1734 screws right on with out a hitch.. Has anyone else had problems with the AMSOIL filters?

The filter doesn't screw all the way on.. There is about 1/8 gap between the oil filter seal and the engine block..

I have a bypass on my SD but I just put a EAO99-EA on my OBS and haven't spotted any puddles under the filter.

I wonder if that filter was bad or maybe it was double gasket-ed? As in the old gasket stayed on the filter mount?

Is it possible that the short pipe that the filter screws onto is not completely screwed into the filter base. I've seen it happen on water filters several times. Amsoil makes a real good product so any problem at all surprises me.

I never had a problem with mine on my 7.3. Did you cross-thread it maybe?

It wasn't double gasketed. The filter "Bottomed out" and felt just like they always do when you snug them up. Threads looked fine. This is the second time I have had problems with the same filter on this truck. 1st time the threads were messed up, i was told I crossthreaded I found that hard to believe but anything was possible. I knew it was messed up so there wasn't any oil spraying any place. Now after mysecond attempt something is really fishy.

Maybe they sent the wrong one. Could have had a batch of them labeled with the wrong part # or something
