International HS2.8L Filters

About a month ago I completed the install of the 2.8l TGV into my 95 Defender. On new engines
I usually change the oil and oil filter at about 500 miles. Are there any oil filters available at the
local auto parts store that are compatible? I prefer Wix filters but I'm open to just about any brand
at this point. I'd also like to go ahead and get a fuel filter while I'm at it. I probably won't change
it yet but I'd like to have it on hand.

Any help is appreciated.

P.S. I'd like to give a big thanks to Jim Pendleton for his help while I was installing
the engine. He was tremendously helpful every time I called him and saved me from
myself numerous times. Thanks again, Jim.

yes, Jim is one awesome guy!

I use a Motorcraft FL1A filter (Pendy recommended)

Welcome to the club my friend. As an additional question, I know on the orginal engine, you have to drain the oil and pull the filter in a certain order. Is that still the case for the HS?

Gosh guys I got tears welling up.

You do not have to take the same precautions as with the older V8 engine when draining and refilling the oil.

A Wix 51515 is a good filter as well.


You can use a diesel fuel filter from a 84' diesel volkswagen rabbit.
