Hello,
I should have checked here first. I just bought a Wix 51123 filter for my 1962 305. I haven't tried to install it yet. I guess I'll return it and get a 51121. Thanks for the tip.

IS this for the Spin on Adaptor type set up?

I believed the spin on oil filter housing came out in 1967 to 1974. However if you can find an engine that has one, it will fit on the 60-66 engines. It come in two sizes, small and large, either one will work OK (just make sure the oil filter by-pass valve is still in the housing). Also to my knowledge there is no adapter that will fit the 60-66 engine oil filter housing to let it use a spin on filter. Someone in our group could verify this in case I am mistaken.

Actually the spin on filter assembly came out in 1966 but not all pickup trucks had it, I have a 66 351E that's out of a 66 1000 series with the canister type, by 1967 all pickups came with the spin on assembly. True there is no spin on adapter and I myself have mentioned that over a dozen times. Don't know why people keep calling these setups adapters that they are not!

Pete, it must be a matter of semantics. After over 40+ yrs in the business, I have heard parts called by everything BUT their proper name. Some times I just have to laugh it off!!:toof unny::toof unny:

Hello,
Sorry all..... It would appear that the spam filter for my email address was working a little too well.

I'm not using a spin on filter.... It's a metal housing with a large bolt running through it and the filter just sort of hangs out on the large bolt inside the housing.

The 51121 gasket worked like a champ..... it also kept me from pulling my hair out LOL
