    I always wonder why anyone would hang a oil filter upside down. Nearly a guarantee of a dry no oil pressure start after a day or so. Better filters have less leak down but what are they thinking.

    Warren, It could be said that the Alpine has it, No?

    And they may have been thinking "lack of space".

    That's why most filters have an anti-drainback valve.

    It's not a valve, it's a flapping piece of some type of rubber.
    I recall one day the service tech at a car dealership , possibly used to scaring old people and clueless clients told me...
    " I see that you have not come in for one oil change and used factory authorized filters that have drain back protection."
    I laughed and said since the car would have to be on its roof for that to happen ! Plus these filters exceed OEM spec's but thanks....

    Stock Tigers have a really aggravating contraption of lines and hoses. The pictured one is a home brew close to the original location. A nice filter remote worth some dough to the purist.
