All,
About my horizontal ... Once it came off dry but the last time it dumped a considerable amount of oil that I was not prepared for. If I punch a hole in the top of the filter a few minutes before will the oil drain out? Speaking of Marin he did that as I recall.
The purpose of my remote filter is not to put a bigger or better filter on. It is simply to make it more accessible in a twin engine installation. My on engine fuel filter is remote for the same reason. All filters are in the middle of my engines as are the dipsticks.
