A tail of two Fram’s

A while ago I did an oil change on nbStephen’s BMC (Leyland) 1.8 litre Diesel engine.

Taking the code off the side of the filter I went to the lovely people at Direct Filter Supply’s (0161 330 5538) to get a new Fram PH2857A.

Unfortunately not all FRAM PH2857As are born equal. And they only had the wrong type,

Spot the difference.




The one on the left is the right one, the one on right won’t screw on 🙁

I acquired the correct filters from Macclesfield canal Center / Freedom Boats Ltd.

However if you find yourself near Dukinfield Junction, and need a filter try Direct Filter Supply.
