No need to bash on me, I know I could find this with the search engine but you see Im extremly lazy on fridays. So what I need is type of oil, quanity, oil filter type, and Brands that everyone reccomends .

I belive its HD 40weight, and I think I used Valvoline last time

Any help would be much appricated

Every oil filter test I've read shows the Mobil 1 filter as the best...it's about $9 at Autozone. It's the only one I've used on my boat.

Hey no worries, I can't vouch for the group, but I now use Pennzoil 15w-40, Fram PH5, 5 quarts. Most all inboards will take an even 5 quarts (I have heard the LQ9 and Python may require more), but if you run a "regular" indmar engine in a 'bu, then 5 quarts is the standard. Pennzoil 15w-40 is what the factory calls for, so thats what I'm feedin' my motor, many disagree, and I'm thinkin of switchin to mobil one. There's a lot of haters on Fram, but I use them in everything and have had nothing but good experiences. SO...I stick with it...PH5 fits most any indmar 350 there is. I just checked out your site, it looks like yoiu have some great stuff that would interest a lot of people on here!

I've never been able to find Pennzoil 15-40 around here, so I use Valvoline. I normaly use NAPA Gold flilters, but have used Mobil 1 filters before. They are better, but probably superadequate if you change your oil at 50 hours. I used to use Fram filters until I saw the insides of one compared to a NAPA Gold. They have half the filtering material and are cearly not as good. There are only a few companies that make all the filters.

Here's an interesting URL from a former MBO discussion about oil filters.

No, but it's one of the most common filters, (GM 5.7). They actually make 2 of them, the standard one and a short one. I don't know why anyone would get the short one unless they had space restraints. Seems the last time I was in there, the guy tried to give me the short one.

They actually make 3 of them. My Suburban takes a tiny filter. These will not fit on the boat engines. Tell them you want the standard 5.7/350 CI filter. You decide if you want the regular or shorty. Your VD may require the short one. If you have the short one now, the long one is about 2 inches longer. My dealer installed the short one, but there's no need for it on a DD.

I use a K&N filter. They have a nut built into the bottom of them for easy removal. After literally having to rip the factory installed filter off during the first oil change, I thought I would try these. Snag a couple if you find them on sale.

The longer Mobil-1 filter is the M1-302.

Now if only someone could tell me which Mobil-1 filter to put on a Black Scorpion...

David,

You're saying that all these will work on the 5.7 Black Scorpion as well? I figured that may be the case, but also recall reading somewhere that where the seal matches up may vary slightly and didn't want to risk anything.

Hi Mike,

list is for Indmar Engines.

(Took it of the old MBO).

With the Black Scorpion, I don't know. Sorry!

I've started using K&N.

Please correct me, but some of the problems of filters is not necessarily judged on how much filter product, but it is also important that there is not so much filter that it interferes with flow or pressure. Some filters may have sufficient material to collect debris, but the problem is that there are faulty areas in the filter that allow debris under pressure to escape around joining edges like at the ends of the filter.

Maybe I am wrong or I just read the article and misunderstood.

I presume this filter works on a 5.7 Hammerhead (2004/380HP edition)????

The longer Mobil-1 filter is the M1-302.

Now if only someone could tell me which Mobil-1 filter to put on a Black Scorpion...

Is this Mobil 1, or AC Delco? I quess the bigger the better you can hold another 1/2 a quart.
