mr-D: oh yeah, never use regular grease. i hear it kinda turns to sealant after a while. i started using the silicone grease after finding out that the aviation oil filter company changed the composition of the rubber on the filter cans. i went through a year of stuck filters on all the airplanes i serviced. one of them took 8 hours of labor to r&r! since i started using the silicone grease, no issues. so i use it at home on all the cars too.

my first filter change on new to us Triton V10 rig was messy. I put a thin Silicone layer on the new filter ring using the magic silicone lub from my Jacuzzy supply store. Designed for rubber gaskets, although 105 deg F is not engine temp

During a seminar with Cummins, the technician told us to never pre-fill the filter before putting it on the engine. He stated that there was a greater chance containments could enter the filter hole and would go right into the engine unfiltered. He also said never unwrap or unbox a filter until just before you place it up into the engine. Again to prevent anything from inadvertently getting into the filter.

With that being said, I always pre-fill my filters. I'm just more careful now than I ever was.

Good Luck, Be Safe and Above All, Don't Forget To Have Fun
