What are you guys running on a 455?
Wix or NAPA Gold
Baldwin says use a B39, and I think the larger version is the B9.
Not sure, they are out in my shop. Baldwins are very good filters as well. Take one that you know fits with you just to be certain threads and gasket matches.
Wix 51258 or Delco PF24
System1 short filter.
I'm now a dealer for K&P Engineering Lifetime Oil Filters. The Buick Equivalent is a#S19. Check them out and read up on the filtration advantages.....worth the time. The only oil filter used by Burton Racing Engines. Check them out...………………. http://kandpengineering.com/
List $184, my price $169
Yep. On everything.
WIX 51258 WITH A REPAINT OF WHITE THEN ADDING A DECAL OF THE OLD SCHOOL NUMBERS AND DESIGN
Joe,I wipe the lettering off the WIX filter w/paint thinner dampened cloth. Then apply decal. No painting required.
K&N till I run out of my stockpile, then Wix as I run on everything else. Wouldn't mind trying one of those spiffy aluminum ones Steve sells though...
Is that decal good for more than just one use? I saw one on eBay and thought about it.
I came up with that decal idea more than 10 years ago and used to sell waterslide decals that were applied to a white painted filter. Stopped selling them due to lack of interest. Someone on ebay has picked up on the idea and sells vinyl decals that do the same thing. I still use my waterslide decals since they are free to me
This was the back
Even had installation instructions
One use sticker
Looks like one would have to get a bunch of copies made somewhere....
I don't remember this. Then again, I really didn't have a need for one, so...
How many uses did you get out of one waterslide?
WIX 51258 . it almost touches the lower radiator hose so just gotta take care removing the old one
One water slide per filter, its basically a decal.
They were a little more work to use than the current vinyl stickers because you needed to put a clear coat on the filter protected them but they looked better than the current vinyl decals since you could not see the edge of the decal once it was applied.
Mine were printed on an inkjet printer, I never tried the laser printer waterslide decals.
I'm in on Mike making some decals
