Can someone please tell me if a K&N HP-2002 oil fillter will fit a 1997 Indmar 350 Tbi. I can source this filter down under I just need to know it will fit. Finding parts in Australia can be quite difficult .

That filter is more for the early car 350 & has no anti drain valve, the hp-3002 is referenced to the gm trucks and has an anti drain valve, other than the anti drain valve they are the same. I would use the hp-3002.

The anti-drain valve shouldn't be an issue for you unless you have a horizontal or inverted filter mount, which you don't. Mounted with the threads at the top, the oil can't drain out of the filter anyway.

I was unsure of the filter orientation, good to know it's vertical.

Thanks for the reply. I like the idea of the nut on the bottom of the filter ,for the ease of getting it on and off.
