I am all ready to winterize this weekend, and my dealer gave me the wrong damn oil filter! My boat is stored in a storage facility away from the house, so it's not very convienient to just run and confirm that I have the correct parts.I have a 2003 4.3L with an outboard oil filter, with VP part number 3850559.Does anyone know of an aftermarket cross reference for this filter? I would still plan on changing it with a genuine filter, but I would just like to get something so I can change the oil and circulate it before I drain the block, etc.Thanks for the help.
Get a standard Chevy V8 oil filter, (Not a V6 filter) It has the same thread and gasket arrangement as your remote filter. They may even have the longer version similar to the 3850559.If your Volvo dealer gave you a filter with an 835440 number, it is the same thing only shorter and you can still use it and it will work just as well as the 3850559 filter.
