<VV> Oil Filters that fit the corvair

I cut a piece out of an oil filter adapter large enough to see the edge of 
where the inner gasket seats.  On a PF4 and NAPA1038, there was no problem 
with the inner gasket seating.  On any brand that I used with the U shaped 
outer gasket, I could easily slide a business card between the gasket and 
the seating area of the adapter.  Purolator was ONE of several brands that 
were tried.  I brought the device to a CCE meeting and asked folks to bring 
their favorite filter for a "fitting".  There were surprised looks on many 
faces of those who brought brands with the U shaped gasket.

So, for me and those who were present that night, it really IS true.  A 
portion of the oil entering the filter will not be actually passing through 
the filter material.
