Bladwin oil filters really DO retain oil.

    Hello, Ferraristi.

    I just went for a spin in my 330 GT.

    I had installed Baldwin oil filters in place of the Frams. As I was driving, I noticed that my oil pressure was dropping, so I headed back home.

    The oil in the crankcase was low. Despite the fact that I had pre-oiled each filter (as described in: http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23699), they were holding so much oil that the crankcase was low.

    I'm going to top off the oil, and head back out. I just though I'd share my experience first. If you change to Baldwins at your next oil change, you may need to add a little more oil to the engine.
