Purolator Oil Filter Fitment Warning

FYI, recent batches of Purolator Pure One PL14612 filters are not fitting due to a change in the filter base.

In the attached pic I have a PL14612 (shorter filter) next to a PL14610. The 10 is the same filter, just a longer case. You can see the 10 has an indented base, which the 12 no longer has. This causes the threads on the filter adapter to bottom out before the gasket can make a good seal.

Standard Purolator L14612 filters do not have this problem. I'm running Mobile 1 M-108 now. The longer PL14610 may fit on a Gen II FZ with OEM headers - I'm running an Akra full system and verified it will not fit.

Not sure if this is a permanent change or a fluke in production. I'm sending an email to Purolator and will post any response.

Good info. Been using the 14612 for years. Checked the two spares on my shelf, they have the proper indented base. Will pop the box and inspect the base before buying in the future.

Not even sure the base has changed. It looks to me like the same base installed upside down so the indent incorrectly faces the wrong way. Maybe the worker on the line was stoned that day, or possibly Chinese.

I can't imagine if the prior "correct" filter is right, that the one shown would work for any vehicle it is meant for.

Found two other threads;

One from March 2015;
http://www.triumphrat.net/twins-technical-talk/543602-defective-purolator-filter.html


Another from April 2015;
http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showt...re-one-filters

The first makes it seem like it could be a production error. The L14612 I saw at the store today had the indented base.

I bought a PL14612 about 3 weeks ago that did not fit. I bought two more today before wising up and comparing them to the 10 before I left, eventually exchanging them for the Mobil 1 (at near twice the cost!).

I just ran into the EXACT same problem with a Bosch 3300. The base wasn't indented enough so it hit the nut before sealing fully. Thankfully I discovered the leak while just running the engine to check for leaks.

I was under the impression from reading these boards the Bosch 3300 is supposed to work. It does not.

Ran to the auto store and bought an M1-108, which has the proper indentation.

Post a pic? Might show that Bosch is the same as the Puralator..

I have a Bosch 3300 on mine and no leaks. What's the date code on yours? Mine is F12E07E1. That's a Fram XG6607 next to

Mobil 1 and Bosch and the old Wal-Mart Super Tech oil filters were all made by Champion Labs. At least that was the case a few years ago.

I don't see Bosch listed on the Champion Labs website now, so maybe Purolator is now making the Bosch line of oil filters?

I read on bobistheoilguy that the Mobil and Bosch are now made by 'Tearolator'. I might put the Fram Ultraguard on next oil change, but it's so short!

Fram also has the 7317 model throughout their line, which is the longer filter that fits.

Thanks for the warning - I've got 4 of the Pure One 14612 on the shelf. Checked all of them good - code on the filter is F08E09E1. Found the decoder ring on Bobstheoilguy.... Looks like my filters are 2 years old - bought them off of Amazon late last year.

F= Fayetteville, North Carolina Plant
06= Month
A= Year 2009
08= Day of the Month
E= Line Number
2= Shift

The long version of the Bosch was still concave a few months ago when I bought a few.

I see that pictured Bosch 3300 has the inward concave shape, not so with the Bosch 3300 I bought yesterday. I'll have to look for a date when I get home.

The funny thing is my old filter was a Bosch 3323. It also had the concave shape. The new 3323 I looked at in the auto parts store last night did not. Apparently these filters have been recently changed.

I think it may be over for our Purolator filters unless there is a manufacturing change back to the old plate. Rather suspicious to have these on the market and used for decades to all of a sudden go drastic on us. Check out the auto parts stores to see if any are stocking the old version.

I thought I read somewhere....maybe on the calsci site, that Fram filters were the lowest quality filters out there. Not knocking your filter Fitty, just asking, if that's incorrect, I want to add them to my list of possibles.

I'm out of all my Champion CL7317 and now they've discontinued those! Summit now has Champion PL7317 for $4.97. Has anybody tried these? The picture shows there white but, it's not the actual filter. I called there tech line to see if I could find out the color and gave up after being on hold for 20 minutes.

I use the ToughGuard which is an upgraded model and has been well reviewed.
