Sorry, no help here.

just getting around to winterizing?

According to Indmars manual, Pennzoil PZ3 maybe you can get a cross referance from that.

Check out page 7.2

Napa 1069 fits it. Same filter for all GM 5.7 liter engines.

Looks like he already left for the parts store.

Looks like Fram PH25, ETC...

Fram is generally at the bottom of the list of quality oil filters. The Pennzoil filters are made by Fram, and of course the Fram filters are also made by Fram.

The Oil Filter Study ranked the Fram poorly. They liked the Wix 51069, which is also the same as the NAPA Gold 1069.

Oil...Indmar recommends 15W40 diesel, API CH-4/SJ or better. The current spec in that category is CJ-4, but that may have limited availability since it's a new spec - may have better luck finding CI-4 or CI-4+

14W40? Where did you find that? Most places only have 10W40 or 15W40.

I'm looking for some 7W30 to use during winter but it's not going well.:D

The OEM filter is Pennzoil PZ-3 and anything that crosses to that is fine, but Fram and the rest of the ones under that umbrella are pretty bad. Wix is good and now makes them for AC. I use the PF1218 in my truck- it's the longer one.

7W30 is tough to find, thats why I blend my own. 3 parts 5W30 and 2 parts 10W30 gets you pretty close

Thanks for all the replies..............made a call to Eric and he set me up. Had to run to the old home and find the Fake-a-Lake.............grrrrrrrrrrrrr Luckily it was just where I left it last year. Waiting for it to warm up a bit, 35 here, and it's off to winterizing.:(

Cross-multiplying again, eh?

I tried to start a part cross-ref thread that never caught on....would be handy as part of the FAQ if we could get everyone to put info into it....there was a similar one on skiboathelp.com at one time that was useful.

Here's the info I posted for the 2004 Predator 5.7 and also the 1992 351HO...

NAPA Gold is part #85069 at my local store. It crosses with the Wix 51069, DELCO PF25, Purolator L20049. These all have a taller profile than the PZ-3. I have to move my blower fan everytime I change the filter.

Also, I always write the hour meter reading and date on the filter in black sharpie whenever I change the oil so that the info is readily accessable. I've gotten in the habit of doing that on all my engines.
