I didn't think it was possible to do this without making a huge mess!..Luckily it looks like the oil is old, thick, and cold...Don't try this at home..:-)

Another few minutes and he would have looked like this.

Great video! It really shows how effective that oil deflector screen is. :-)

On one of my T's I have a clear plexiglass transmission cover.

I've run the engine and watched through the plexiglass trans. cover and you would be absolutely amazed to see how much oil is flung around the transmission when the engine is running.

It's a good thing that fellow's oil was thick and he turned the engine off right away, or he would have looked like the picture Ed posted above! :-)

I wonder when was the last time he changed that oil - looks pretty black.

I also noticed that he placed his magnet horizontally. I place mine vertically. Do we need a discussion as to which orientation is best?

OK Dave, I'll bite..why do you place your magnet vertically?

I think Archie Bunker had it right. Place it Vertizontally.

I've run it without the cover. At idle speed it doesn't throw out any oil, but there is a bunch of it moving around! I'm wondering if he's taken the magnets off. Mine moved a bunch more oil.

I agree, Jerry. Mine throws a gusher! I found out the hard way!!! It is good to see how well that deflector works. Great video, John.

Horizontal placement would block the flow of oil to the bottom of the screen.

Vertical allows better flow to the bottom, and both sides of the magnet can collect metal filings.

Probably not statistically significant.

Mine is horizontal like John's. Can someone post a picture of a "vertical" magnet orientation? :-)

I have just recieved a screen from Macs and it has a TINY round magnet only 8mm Dia. I wonder if this is the new style to address the above concerns

John, Thanks for the great video. I put one on my 1916 about a year ago. I just wanted it to catch any fillings on the magnet. I did not know about the distributing of the oil. Thanks so much.

John, Great video. Just bought one of those deflectors but haven't installed it yet. After watching your video, mine gets installed tomorrow. Thanks. Harv
