    Thanks, Frank; good point. I'm not sure of the difference between PH10 and PH11; they are both long.

    However, I just rechecked the WIX website. They list the same interchange (51049) as being for both PH10 and PH11, so it doesn't make any difference.

    (PH11 may have an anti drain-back valve or something that the earlier PH10 did not have.) BP

    Sorry, but the number I gave you is incorrect. The number that Bob Palma gave 51049 is the correct number. Dusty

    The OEM long filter was a Fram PH10 or Purolator PER-5. From the WIX website this morning, that interchanges with current WIX #51049.

    The short filter 'most everybody came to use was a Fram PH25. From the WIX website this morning, that interchanges with current WIX #51258.

    You can actually use either one. If they're the same price and you can find it, it's nice to use the long one for more filter area. BP

    Murray; A full flow Stude. Engine is a late '62 to '64 with the filter on the lower right side (bottom) of the Engine. It is a Spin-on type.

    Ted; that would be a NAPA/Wix # 1049

    Ted, I'm not exactly sure what car your talking about but my 55 with the canaster filter takes the NAPA Filter #1006; it does come with a new gasket for each filter. Hope this helps.
