PF35 Oil Filter
« on: January 12, 2014, 03:02:48 PM »
Where is the best place to purchase replacement PF35 oil filter (the tall blue ones) for the first gen. Camaro's.  Or, is this not the correct replacement filter for my 69 Z/28.

Read THIS for which filter you need, and then read THIS if your car was assembled after the January/February, 1969 time frame.

  In general, the PF25 was considered a passenger car filter, the PF35 was a truck filter. Rick's Camaros sells both, but they're expensive. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help.  Yep, a little pricey. For some reason I was thinking  they would have been the taller filter and not the short one...But I guess not..

a lot of us have used the PF35 for the additional oil it allows the engine to hold, whether it filters better or not...

I guess if you're going to show the car you might want those filters, but how good are they?  I think I remember a discussion some years ago on TC that cut some filters apart and showed their innards.  I decided to use a Napa Gold and they have the extra tall version that holds a little more too.

I use Moroso. Baldwin is suppose to make a good HD filter as does Wix. Rumors spread around the track about issues with Fram collapsing and restricting oil flow--same summer a guy lost an engine at Thompson, and blamed the filter. I'm thinking 2008. True or not, don't know, I do know the price of a costly filter ( and Lucas oil ! ) is well under the price of a shot race engine ( or numbers correct ,virgin bore 302) All about period correct, but unless I plan on rolling it on and off the trailer ,sort of refuse to sacrifice the gains that have been made in reliability eg; gaskets-fasteners. ARP ;D   Love them blue boxes. And Percy's make a locking header bolt that reallyworks. I guess it still boils down to the use of the car.

NAPA gold is a Wix filter and one of the best according to the drag racing people. I use them on the street cars and re-paint to look more original.

Just some pics of PF29's and old PF25 in a 1970 dated box.



Note the original PF-29 on our 68 Z/28 MO motor.

You already saw it! The one on the engine and the white/black filter sitting beside the red, white and blue one. :)

Beautiful work ,you are quite the artist. Forgot Napa put their name on Wix ,what I use on my daily drivers. Even my Zero turn. And you are correct, Wix is a very popular brand around here at the strip via the local engine builders--why I mentioned it. As far as Napa ,my Dad was just telling me he always ran their HD cap/rotor and points with no issues in the Z , and recommend it seeing as I'm going back to the OE distributer. Probably still listed.
