Randall Webber's Greasecar Jetta. Randall included some photos and info about his filtering setup.

Here it is, simple and workable, the filter came with the brass ends, I had to purchase the PVC connections to hook the 3/4 inch I.D. clear vinyl hose to. I bought the garden hose ends at the hardware store also ( like 79 cents each, the PVC adapters were 29 cents a piece). Do NOT heat your oil past 140f the rubber seals for the garden hose connections don't like it. I usually filter 10-15 gallons per filter cartridge. When flow becomes severely constricted change filters, the wire mesh (with particles in it) I hold over the pot while pouring veggie in it, that way these particles are kept at a minimum, if you do not prefilter the particles will clog the intake of the filter head ( so check it if after you changed filters and still have low flow) I let the pump run the oil down in the filter cartridge when changing and dump what was left back into the next pot for filtering, for EASY cleaning I remove the cartridge and fill the oil pot with HOT soapy water and run it through the whole setup, it cleans hoses,pump and filter, I finish by filling another pot with hot clear water and run it through until clear. guys, do clean up or your wife will give you grief. Hah!!
