Be careful when buying on EBay as sometimes the shipping is the same price as the filter. The last I purchased was off Amazon.

I put the plastic Gano filters in both return hoses in my 36 ford. They are good products and were great to catch rust particles coming out of the motor before they went to the radiator. I cleaned the filters once after a few hours of operation and removed a teaspoonful of rust. I like the ability to see any rust or other debris that collects on the filters. Cleaning was easy but required draining fluid level below the filter, which is essy in my 36 but may be difficult in some cars
Bought the 1 1/2 plastic filters from Gano Coolant Filter Company in Escondido direct a year ago. Think they were about $35 each.

I to bought the clear Gano filter. It has collected some small particles from the engine before it reached my new radiator. Well worth the money.
