BRP oil filter
Changed oil and filter today. Decided to cut the oil filter apart. I did this cause last October I had a rear bearing failure on the X-charger. Ski was repaired under warranty at the dealership; engine removed, cases split, flushed, new pumps. This is what I found.....
I was shocked to see metal pieces, but I was more shocked to see that there isn't much to this oil filter.

At least it is catching the metal pieces. I bet they didn't flush it like they were supposed to.

I would (since I have nothing better to do with my time) pull the engine out and look at the crank bearings and internals to see if there is any further underlying damage. Just me, but I have nothing else to do with my time... It's the summer...

After an internal engine failure like loosing a charger bearing, or clutch washers.... alot of the carnage can end up lodged in the lower case, and the oil cooler, it takes a while to work it's way out of the cooler. If your rear oil pump was damaged by debris... all that shit went directly to the oil cooler after that. Once it finally works it's way through the cooler.... it will end up in the filter. The lower case is tough to completely flush out due to all of the lower cavities... it needs to be jet washed VERY thoroughly!

I have the same failure on a customers ski a couple years ago.I split the cases and find all the metal pieces that were in the crankcases.I also split the rods so I can clean the crankshaft itshelf.Guess,the metal pieces were stuck in the balancing holes on the crankshaft!!!!

I was expecting more filtering media in the oil filter......it's just one layer, pleated, 4" wide and 48" long.
