  • oil filters

    Hello Studebaker Drivers ,I noticed that there are different kinds of filters.
    Fram with big holes and Wix with 3 little holes .
    The Wix is mentioned as for the 289 engines under a certain production number.

    Is this about keeping the oil pressure at the right level?
    I have the filter on top so this must be a by pass system I think.

    I would like to use the Wix filter but is this really oke?

    Wix is one of the very best filters on the market. All NAPA gold filters are made by wix. carries them and has the best case price I have found.
