    Default "warning"

    Just got back from Whittier,went out at 4AM Thursday only to have the oil filter on one of my 225 HP Yamaha motors blow off about 2 miles out,second motor got me back in. Turns out the threads on the mallory oil filter I got from Deweys are bad,striped out when I hit the gas.I came back to Anchorage and went to Deweys and they said it was happening and pulled then off the shelf. Offered me new filters and I went to the oil rack and took 6 quarts. I don't know if all the Mallory filters are bad but I just want to tell everyone the be wear.I ask why they at least didn't go through the credit card buyers and they didn't have anything to say.
