    I'm a little leery of Fram filters. Here is some info on engine oil and filters I found when doing research for my motorcycle. Some of it was done specifically for motorcycle applications, but some of the general filter construction info is still relevant.

    NAPA's website has a great cross reference section... just type in the number on the current fuel filter and it will find it for you. Keep in mind that only like 3 companies make filters- period. Napa is made by Wix, which are always good.

    I like Baldwin filters and use them exclusively if they cover my application. I have read enough filter comparisons where they are superior or at least at the top of the heap. They can be hard to find as they are Industrial/Commercial/Fleet products. I do all the maintenance on my vehicles so I just buy bulk. If I can't get a Baldwin then Napa or OEM. Check out www.adiesel.com or www.baldwinfilters.com

    ps, yes I'm that lunatic that has 6-12 filters for any vehicle/application on hand....

    The Baldwin filters do look good. I'd like to try one. Is there any cross-reference material that matches Baldwin filters to any of the other automotive filters? I'm not sure which one to order. The engine is a Universal M18.

    Room?

    Probably not a concern for the spin-on fuel filter on the starboard side, but I know that the port side spin-on oil filter for this engine kinda sorta needs to be the smaller stock Universal size to fit in that crowded space with the alternator and the coolant hose, jammed in tight by the block.

    It wasn't Willsboro, and it wasn't Molson, but it was very good and I enjoyed getting together with you.

    Thanks again.

    Oil Filter - Metric vs Imperial

    -We just searched into this thread for the handy cross reference chart for my fuel filter to go from the Universal #298854 to NAPA #3390, to save a few $ working outside of classic marine up-marketing.

    However I noticed an omission in oil filter sizes that needs noting. Apparently many, if not all M-30 and 5424 (& others?) where fitted with imperial NF 3/4" thread, Universal #299927. An unfortunate coincidence is the adapters with 20 mm x 1.5 metric threads (#300209 NAPA 1334) and 3/4" NF (16 tpi) imperial threads are so similar in size that an oil filter with the 20 mm x 1.5 metric threads will screw onto an adapter with 3/4" NF threads. The risk is the 20 mm filter could blow off the 3/4" adapter under severe conditions. Our 5424 takes a NAPA #1342 3/4" NF, it is also not possible for a 3/4" NF thread filter to fit onto an 20 mm adapter, so your safe in one direction but not the other.
