the scotts came only with the one gasket on the cover end and it is bare metal on the other end.

As a mechanic I have a hard time believing in reusable oil filters. Seems it would be pretty hard to get out tiny fragments of metal that were embedded at 60psi but a lot of guys in here seem to like them :D

There's another problem with the Scott's reuseable oil filter is that it's never been tested. All claims about filtering and not bypassing during cold starts are just B.S. Totally unfounded. This is an issue that's been around a while. There have been a number of collapsed filters being sold on ebay - the filters are collapsing due to flow restriction. The manufacturers know what they are doing in delivering the motors with disposable paper filters. Ever seen a paper filter collapsed?
