    NOTE: on all paper oil filter elements, the "flat" face of the filter element faces TOWARDS the engine, and the "concave" face of the filter element goes towards the filter housing cover (facing away from the engine case). Sitting within both openings of the oil filter element are the filter grommets. On the "concave" side of the filter, then comes the HCP1493 flat washer, followed by the HCP1494 or HCP1495 compression spring, and finally then the outer cover.

    So does the washer not go on last. A picture I saw had the compression spring first then the washer on last and it goes against the filter.
