The removal idea became popular when Mr. Coldwell's book the All American Wonder first came out. It was a suggestion in his book that created a sense of "If it's in Coldwell's book it has to be a good idea". Well it's not. Especially in the chain drive cam engines where the return oil helps lube the chain. Any filter is better than no filter at all. Even antique engines that do not use an oil filter have a fine bronze or brass wire screen that must be removed and cleaned every 25 hours. The misunderstanding arises from folks not understanding the partial flow oil filter system.
I'm afraid I have already said enough to turn this thread in the 10 page monsters this topic always turns into.
