    In response to David Hayward

The oil filter on my Pontiac is a throwaway can that is mounted horizontalyin the channel of the frame just in front of the steering box. It isn't messy to change but they are very scarce. I find that the partial flow filter only filters for between 500 and 800 miles (then it remains cold to the touch).
When I started driving it, it had 99,000 miles on the odometer. I have always used (except for a couple of trials) single weight high detergent oil and changed it ever three months (about three thousand miles). Now with a total of 487,000 miles (3000,000 since an engine overhaul)I use 20 wt oil, change it every three months and havn't had a oil filter in the system for 35 years.
