    Evan: A 1966 283 V-8 would have had a canister-type filter on the lower left corner of the engine block; not a spin-on filter as we know it (and as Chevy went to for that engine in 1968).

    Do you have the canister in which the cartridge is placed, or is the whole assembly missing or broken or ??? BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      If you need the filter element that goes inside the canister, the AC Delco part# is PF-141
      Be sure to remove the old o-ring seal that sometimes get stuck in the block cavity and use the new one..
      If the engine has an spin-on oil filter adapter, you will have to find out what oil filter the adapter uses.
      Just take the old filter with you to your auto parts supplier.

        We just towed it in to the shop and removed the old broken spin on pot mettle holder. How this got broken while sitting is beyound me, as the filter was loose, now I know why and all that oil on the ground. I will need a new adaptor it is 4" across and a rubber gasket, then the lage bolt goes though to the smaller pot mettel piece that bolts to the engine with two bolts.

          Evan, sounds like you need it all. In that case, better to go to a Chevy. Parts website and find the adapter to a real "spin-on" Filter for a '55 to at least '65 Chevrolet, Chevelle, Impala etc I believe. Some actually use a often "on sale" very common Ford Filter.
