I agree with Tom S. on this one.
IMO, too many owners may make what I consider a mistake, dropping a wire screen filter into a bucket of solvent or gas and giving it a good swirling, sloshing, agitating Bath!
My question is, how many crumbs found their way into the Inside of the filter?
Better to just let a 'permanent' screen type, KLR filter to just drip-out.
Inspect for scary, ugly, mass volumes of particulates, and Re-Install. IMO only.
I like disposable oil filters.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
