Could someone please confirm what thread the oil filters have in a GM-style breadvan 4BT?
Thank you.

Is yours for the vertical mount, or the horizontal one? I got the 51602 from application lookup on Wix's site.. Walking out to the truck to confirm now..

Just got home and checked - Looks like 1-16. None of the remote filter kits I've found has that thread :(

What does the 10756 kit have? It is for the 5.9 Cummins.
Are not the 3.9 and 5.9 the same filter thread?

The thread size is 1" x 16 tpi. Same for 5.9 and 3.9. This is why I made the remote adapter for my conversion with that particular thread size and pitch - so I could use the same filter on the Dodge and the Chevy. Check with your Fleetguard supplier for a remote filter adapter with that thread.
