    Alternate (automotive) oil filter for Aqua Power 6003?-gctid576644

    So I missed getting to the marine store, and won't be able to until probably 2-3 more days. I'm looking for an alternate oil filter for the Aqua Power 6003. The online cross reference lists several, but none of the local auto parts stores carry any of them:

    AC-Delco PF1194

    AC-Delco PF1794

    AQUA POWER 6003

    Baldwin B360

    Baldwin BT241

    BIG A 92072

    BIG A 92086

    CARQUEST 85072

    CARQUEST 85086

    Fram PH6606

    HASTINGS LF111

    HASTINGS LF283

    LUBER-FINER LFP2274

    LUBER-FINER LP2278

    NAPA 1072

    NAPA 1086

    Purolator L24736

    TELEDYNE RV-51

    Wix 51072

    Wix 51086

    Any suggestions for an 87 OMC 5L?

    For a GM (Chevy) engine any 1968-2000 filter should work. Have the part store look one up for an 1987 c10 pickup with a 305 or 350 engine. Personally from the ones listed I would choose Wix or Napa (also Wix). Mobil 1 and K&N (white not black ) are also quality filters.

      the filter thread is 13/16 x 16 NPT. The o-ring gasket has diameter of 3.25", it runs along the

      outside of the top of the filter.

        Buy a quality filter. You can pick some up and tell a diiference in the weight. Look down the center hole, If you see plastic put it back, also the cheaper filters are flat on top, the better ones will have a raised area between the center hole and the ring of holes.Personally you couldn't give me a Fram filter.

          The fram co came a long way.

          I never had a failure, who here has had a filter fail, raise your hand.

          I use them on all my cars also.

            I have replaced half a dozen Cummins engines in Dodge trucks where the filter came apart, clogged the piston squirters, and caused galled pistons and cylinders. All had Fram or Penziol labeled filters. The adhesive came apart clogging the squirters. Not saying all their filters are bad, But you need to look closely at how their made

              My local auto parts store, they've been around since the 1940's, completely stopped selling Fram filters and have gone to nearly all Wix filters. I think I'll go with Wix. Your mileage may vary.

                I put up the wix filter numbers also.

                Give this a read.

                  I have been using Fram filters on the boat for the last 4 years, not an issue whatsoever. I will be using Mobil1 over the next several years as I came across a deal for several at $5 each.

                  The short version is what I use as I change them every year and put on low hours (Mobile1 M1-111). The oil is still golden when changed and the filter must still be good for maybe another season so the long version in my case would be a waste. Here is a good place to buy on line for cheap. Shipping is dirt cheap and if you order a dozen it is free. http://www.filtersandwipers.com/m1-1...3-ph8873-m1111

                  Or if on a tight budget. http://www.filtersandwipers.com/ph30...pz3-tg30-m1111
