Oil filter

Do auto stores carry oil filters for a 10 hp westerbeke diesel engine? I went to wm and was told they would have to order it and it would take a couple days. The weather in philly is great so i would like to do the work (change the oil) tomorrow.

Re: Oil filter

seldom will they have them, unless they are in a boat heavy coastal area and then likely only for power boats.

NAPA and such should have crossover charts,

but your best bet is your regional dealer or the internet...much cheaper and you can get brand name filters..

Best of luck

Re: Oil filter

Start with this link, copy the numbers and go to an auto supply store that caters to 'auto mechanics' ... and let them cross reference to the part numbers that they carry in stock.

In case this link doesnt work with your browser: wixfilters.com -----> filter lookup ----> off road ---->marine ----> westerbeake
