Oil Filter Part Numbers for 6 Cylinder 258

After doing a search for this here on the forum with limited success. I am posting here looking for the proper oil filter part numbers for filters for use in my 80 CJ7. It has an '82 6 Cylinder 258. I am getting info for Fram PH25 & FFPH3506. I have read here that the Fram filters have really dropped in quality. I would like the right filter that has a quality anti-drainback valve to help reduce dry starts. Once I get the right PN I am looking to order several to keep on the shelf. Thanks in advance.

Fram= crap
i stick with Bosch or Mobile1 depending on the specials running at the time
WIX filters also get pretty good reviews.

i find that some parts stores will swap filters in some of there monthly oil/filter specials just to get the buisness.
this way, i can get a filter or oil for whatever vehicle will be next in line for its oil change. this way, i always have one extra waiting for its time to be used when im ready and the next purchace wont be so costly.

I get the Napa gold from fleetfilter.com . It is a wix filter with the napa logo. My year calls for the 1258 but for 82+ it shows 1522. looks like the difference is the 1258 is shorter and fatter where as the 1522 is a little longer and skinnier. Both show to have the antidrainback valve and the same thread size so either should work.

My engine is also a '77. I've always used The PH25 because its the only one that seems to fit.
Napa had given me the 1258, but it hit the engine mount. Maybe I'd have better luck with the 1522?

Note: I'm beginning to suspect that my engine mount itself might be bent, or damaged? Might be worth replacing at this point, as it would mean I have more choices then the PH25.

I also have a 1977. I use a NAPA ProSelect 21258 and it works and fits great.

Safety Bypass valve, steel spring, metal baseplate. It's my understanding that there is a "long version" as well. I'm also told it's a WIX filter.

Mine clears the MM easily. Does yours have a wide radiussed relief cut from the mount? Mine does. If it didn't it would definitely interfere with a filter.

I didnt have that problem then it slowly got closer and closer until the filter was touching the mount. I ended up replacing the mounts with polyurethane mounts and have plenty of space again. Sounds like your mounts rubber material has seperated like mine did.

Lots of good info. I have also heard that the K&N HP-2003 is an option for various years L6 and and V8 models. Any thoughts on that filter? Gonna do the search on that NAPA filter. I was at a "NAPA" parts store earlier today and they told me no more NAPA gold filters? Name change maybe? I didn't get into with the counter guy.

yeah there may be a name change. I remember the first order they were black and now they are white. It still shows up on their website as napa gold. Ill take a look at what the box says when I get home.

I use WIX 51522 which also comes in a 12 unit Master Pack (51522MP). You can get a case of 12 on ebay for 10.00 and free shipping.

NAPA gold oil filters are made by WIX. I could always remember that number because of the 258 in it. It used to be 51258 but now it's just 1258. Napa's is the same number now also.

Have you actually bought a case of the 51522MP through ebay for that price? I would assume that is actually for a single filter as the actual case of 12 from anywhere else is going for $50+. If you have purchased it from ebay for that price for a case that is an awesome deal on the filters.

I have not bought that case on ebay yet, but the part number matches the WIX part number and pic exactly.

Wix 51522MP Oil Filter
I did a "buy it now" last night, and paid immediately via Paypal. This morning I had an email from Paypal saying the seller had cancelled my purchase and refunded my payment. I sent a response to the seller asking for an explanation. No word yet...
