Oil Filter cross reference

I have a 1998 Prostar 190 with the LT-1 engine. It currently has a Mastercraft factory oil filter but would like to cross reference to a filter available at an auto parts store. Does anyone know of a list of filters that would help with this?

Thanks

Pennzoil PZ-3 is what they come with now. You can go to any auto parts store and cross-reference to that, or you can use the AC PF-1218 (or equivalent) if you want more filtering capacity (not a bad idea for a boat OR car). Don't use Fram.

The 1218 is the one all the car guys use. And they're available at Wally Mart.

You can also use the 51069 from wix (napa) wich is highly recomended...or if you're a synthetic oil user the EAO25; but it's a little more expensive.
Personnaly, I'm all for amsoil products.

Fram makes some of the worst oil filters.

They have cheesy filter paper, they bypass too easily and according to all of the test results posted when we discussed this a few years ago, they got the worst rating. AC, Wix and NAPA were the best unless someone wants to spend what Mobil 1 and some of the other premium filters cost but considering the fact that tehy'r eonly supposed to be on the motor for 50 hours, a decent filter like the first ones will do fine.
