Tigerloop Ultra - Replacement Filter

For the Tigerloop Ultra, does the replacement spin-on filter need to be a Westwood F100-10 or can a Gar-ber Model R be used? I saw in Westwoods technical catalogs that the F100-10 can replace a Gar-ber Model R but wasn't sure if you could go from a Westwood to a Gar-ber. Thanks!

    As long as the O-ring is in place on the stem under the filter receptacle, no oil can bypass the filter element. The micron rating of the filter element on the least expensive filter replacement cartridge is fine for just about every oil nozzle on the market.
