    Default Need Part Number for an Oil Filter

    I do not know what oil filter will fit my 5.7L 260 HP Mercruiser. I am looking to replace the filter with an automotive filter, due to the cost difference. Does anyone know a part number that I can take to Autozone? The 260 Merc is basically a Chevy 350, right? So if I get a filter for a 1986 Chevy Silverado 1500, it should fit shouldn't it?

    FYI: I am not trying to get the "marine vs. auto parts" debate going again. I just need the part number to change my oil filter. Thanks again!

    I'm not sure it the 5.7L and 3.0 share the same type size filter but try this thread.

    Is it a remote filter or on the block?

    Yes - an automotive oil filter will work. Find one for an equivalent year Chevy 350. They basically come in short and long - make sure you have the room between your engine and stringer, otherwise use the short one.
