Are those Fram filter numbers? Get a different brand. I like Wix, and it has good reviews in all the "internet filter tests" for what that's worth. Fram is the worst filter you can buy. The other reason I use Wix is that Wix makes a house brand filter for O'Reillys that sells for cheap. The part numbers are even the same as Wix except they add a letter to the number. Wix also makes the "NAPA Gold" filters but it doesn't make sense to pay extra for them.

Maybe they did a better job way back when.

I'm sure you're limited in how many brands are actually available for that application.

Default Question on WIX filter for 1957 Chevy Bel Air 283

I'm looking for the proper WIX spin on filter to use for my 1957 Bel Air 283. Classicchevy.com sells an AC Delco PF1218 which is supposed to replace the AC Delco PF35, and they say fits the '57 Chevy Bel Air 283.

A previous oil change from a commercial shop put on a NAPA Silver 21069, which is a short 4.338 inch high filter. WIX has a 51069 which is the same as NAPA 21069, but the filter is shorter (4.338 inches) than the PF1218 (5.178 inches in height).

WIX 51060 is the supposed to be the same as AC Delco PF1218, WIX 51061 is the same as PF35. Both are 5.178 inch high filters instead of 4.338. It looks like the only difference between 51060 and 51061 is the burst pressure PSI (270 PSI for the 51060 and 285 PSI for 51061)

Anybody have a recommendation on WIX (or other brand) filter sizes they have used for a 57 Chevy Bel Air 283?

Thanks.

KB: if your 283 is actually a '57 model then it did not come iwth a spin on filter. If it currently has a spin on filter on it, then which filter you need will depend on which *adapter* was used... Or you can find the equivalents for the filter that is currently installed...

Thanks. It has the adapter installed for the spin on filter. I'll probably stick with the equivalent of the short filter that is currently on the car. The 5 inch version would probably also fit as long as the clearance is there and the gasket diameters are the same. Just wondered if anyone else had a preference for spin on filters for 57s.
