Dissect your John Deere oil filter and you'll find components designed specifically for what John Deere machines are made to do:
Oil pressure relief valve (A) - Calibrated to work with your engine's oil pressure, this valve automatically opens if the oil filter is restricted, allowing oil to bypass the element and preventing engine damage.
Anti-drainback valve (B) – Designed using a specially formulated material* that can withstand your engine’s oil temperature, this valve safeguards oil from draining back from the filter at shutdown and prevents dry starts that can damage your engine.
High-capacity element (C) – Built to withstand the dusty and dirty conditions that our engines typically encounter, our filters boast a large filtration surface area to provide clean oil to your engine. Multiple pleats in the filter media create a large filtration surface, producing better overall performance, and the steel center tube provides internal strength to prevent media from collapsing, providing further protection.
Metal end caps (D) – Compared to cardboard caps found in other filters, these metal caps are glued to the media to create a leak-free seal between the element and end cap, and prevent dirty oil from circulating throughout your engine.
Powder-coated shell (E) – This incredibly hard surface provides maximum protection of interior components, proving it difficult to get anything past this filter.
