I'm almost ashamed to ask this simple question: I just got this Rambler and I need to change the oil and filter tomorrow- when I go to Auto Zone, what do I call this type of oil filter? The one that's on it now is from the 1980's.

Get the Brand name and part number off of the old one. If it's a 196 It think its a PH50. I think. If you use the search function on this forum you should find it easy. It may not be available over the counter anymore it maybe a special order item.

Oh and they should be able to cross reference the number from the old filter.

Thanks! I'm gonna send my spouse up there this afternoon while I'm at work and put it on tonight. It says "P-3" on the old one so I hope they give us the right one or I'll just have them special order if it isn't in stock. I'm dying to get this car on the road already!!! Hahaha

If it's a cast iron 195.6, it should have a Fram PB50.   Joe

DO NOT use a Fram filter, they literally destroy engines, their filter material falls apart and does a terrible job filtering the oil, you might as well put a cup there instead of a Fram. any other brand is fine, I've been using purolators and Mobil1s lately, I am happy with how they work. K&N makes a nice one too.

I believe it's an aluminum 195.6- been considering switching out to cast iron one though.

Autozone won't have it.
NAPA can get it.
Sometimes a Fleet & Farm store will stock it because the PB50 was used on some industrial, agricultural equipment.

If it's the aluminium engine, forget our talk about the PB50. It should be a PH 11 or equivalent, and those are easy to find.

While I don't trust Frams the way I used to, I really don't think they'd still be in the oil filter business if they were as bad as you say!Wink  I'll use them when I have to, but prefer to use WIX which makes NAPA Gold (and every September and March my local NAPA store sells filters at 75% off list! So, I just stocked up!)
