    Oil Filter for Merc 6.2's

    I'm sure it has been asked and answered many times, but I could not find anywhere when I searched for it.

    What oil filters - Mobil 1, WIX, Pure One, etc. - fit the 6.2's? I have the Merc filter number... is there a cross reference anywhere?

    I can find plenty of info for 496 and 525 but nothing on the 6.2. Maybe it's the same?

    I don't think the Merc filters are any different from big block to smallblock.
    I use the 51060 Wix on my bigblock

    Mobil suggests this company if you need to order a hard to find oil filter.

    Purolator Pure One PL36461 has a silicone anti-drain back to keep oil in the filter for those mounted upside down.
