We use a lot of Donaldson filters on my Cat Gensets in my powerplant. But a different animal than a small auto filter. But they seem to made ok.

I have never used Donaldson filters but our diesel fleet trucks use to use them, then our fleet was switched to a name I never heard of. 

Donaldson makes their own oil filters and also make just about every type of filter you can think of in a number of different countries.

ancient thread revisited.... I was at the NAPA that we use for our parts supply at work today, they had their "customer appreciation" days yesterday and today, (a 2x a year deal)  One of the highlights is that they offer huge deals on filters for these 2 days on their "gold" line.  AT work we typically use their "Pro Select" line (cheapies) unless what we need isn't available in that line.  There is another line of "in between" filters too.

I had been buying them by the case for my own use (since all of my vehicles take the same ones)  from Federated, since I have an "in" there, my son used to work there, his future father in law still does so I can get a pretty good deal on parts.
Until this last case, the Federated/hastings filters I had been getting were US made. The last case (they changed their numbering system) are China-made.  unless that was a 1 time "fluke," I'm done buying those . My son's future FIL knows that when I come in I don't want the cheap stuff,  unless I am "in a bind" and absolutely can't wait or can't get the good stuff. and he usually does me pretty well in that department. I'll use those on the garden tractor's hydrostat trans, I guess.... not on my trucks.

The last case came from last Fall's Napa Customer appreciation days, Napa Gold's. I use the 1068, same filter as the 1085 that our vehicle takes but 1/2 way between that length and the PH8A-FL1A length.  Longer filter= more filter area. 
I still have a couple left from that batch, but I bought another case of them today "while the gettin' is good".....
I was there today (hey they give free lunch during their customer appreciation days haha)  and asked for a case of the same filters as last time.
The salesman came out with a case of filters, and asked if those would "do"... I said "yeah".  He gave me a case of Donaldson Filters this time, I think they are actually some old stock he was trying to get rid of....but that's OK, they don't go bad sittin on a shelf.  I see alot of Donaldson stuff on larger trucks and industrial equipment. 

Does anyone here have any experience with Donaldson?    I'd go back to the Baldwin cuz I like those,  but at over $6 each the last time I bought them,  (I don't have an "in" anywhere to get a deal on those)  I rack up the miles too fast and change oil too often to spend that much on filters.....   For what they charged me for the ones I got today, if they are good, I'll keep buying them...... unless/until they go to China production.

Could you have it a little long then cut the ends to fit and flare so that you can use the newer tooling?
At times I do that, but flaring an end with the ferrule takes up space that the flaring tools needs to make the flare.  Bends can be made tighter by flaring the end first, and then bending with the vintage Rigid bender with modified parrot nose pliers.

An example of what I am referring to:

Yes braided hose is used by the majority due to the ease and flexibility of installation.  However, braided line is bulkier and the fittings can add up $.  I did the hard line partly because my system is set up got E85.  E85 braided hose is extremely stiff and difficult to work with.  I can get tighter bends with the hard line compared to E85 hose.  The hard line allowed me to keep the plumbing fairly tight to the intake as well.

looks nice. I like the looks of braided but the reliability of a hard line without the potential leaks from the O ringed fittings would be nice as well.  I have a few that go to my fuel rail that I couldn't keep from blowing out until I found a sealing washer that I got to work.
