I bought the spin-on oil filter adapter.  No where in the directions does it tell what is the proper oil filter part number to use. 

I assume it is the same as the old Ford spin on filter that I have purchased in the past dozens if not hundreds of times.  Vaguely, I remember Fram PH-8???  I went to O'Reillys and their chart does not go back to my old '59 Ford or my old Maverick or Econoline.  I have spent an hour on the internet trying to get the same info with no success.

One more question.  I have a '56 2 dr and I don't see a lot of room for the filter.  Wasn't there a stubby version of the same filter for use in tight places?

Thanks guys, I know I'll get some good answers..

Use an FL1-A from Motorcraft... nice fit on my 55 sedan. No need for a stubby, there is plenty of room in a 55/56.

I’ve been using Wix 51515. I like them because they are black. NAPA gold has one too. Same company makes them both. Check it often as there are writeups on the replacements leaking. As I remember the oval went on the top to keep the filter full. As a side note when I start an oil change I stab an ice pick at the bottom corner then drain the oil from the pan. By the time I’m ready for the filter it’s drained and doesn’t make a mess on the block.
My O’Reilys stocks them. We also run them on my sons dirt car and my LSR roadster.

WIX filters are some of the best on the market. They filter to smaller particles than almost all the others. Back in the 50's my dad wouldn't put anything but WIX on his diesel trucks.

GaGa, 
Do you have a personal reason why not to use Fram oil filters? Some time back, Consumer Reports rated the Fram as one of the best filters and I have been using them, mainly because of this report, and also because Walmart always has them at a good price. If they are not good for my engines, I would surely like to know!
