Vern your correct about the FRAM filters being junk for most part.  For more 
information on the quality of oil filters got to: 
As for the internal valves. All most all automotive oil filters have a 
Anti-Drain Back Valve on the intake side mounted to the base of the filter. 
Inside some filters or on the filter head there is a Oil Pressure Relief 
Valve.  Now what about drain back on the discharge or output side?  Look at 
the MG B inverted or top mount or upside-down spin-on filter head.  There is 
a standpipe about four inches high that is the Anti-Drain Back system for 
the discharge side of the filter.  The Rover 2000 engine has the upside-down 
filter head but no standpipe.  So in about one half hour gravity pulls all 
the oil out of the filter, down into the crankcase.  The correct filter for 
the Rover 2000 has a plastic internal stand pipe that is the Anti-Drain Back 
System.  I am sorry that I can not send illustrations but my scanner died. 
I hope all these words work to clear up the need for a non automotive oil 
filter on the 2000 engine.  Take Care  jb
