Can someone tell me which oil canister is correct for a 1960 Bugeye with a stock 948 engine? My first time changing the oil filter. Any tips?

The best tip is to change to a spin on oil filter. order the do-dah from the 1275 that goes on the side of the block and don't look back.

That doesn't help you today, but you'll be happier down the road.

I thought about that, but aren't they kind of spendy? Who did you order yours from?

To answer you question, for engines 9C/U/H. The one on the left was for the (Tecalemet) filter; part number of the one on the left is 17H-944. The one on the right is for a (Purolator) filter part number 17H-1169.

If you have a 9CG/DA/H engine the one on the left is for the (Tecalemit) filter part number 37H-436. And the one on the right is for the (Purolator) part number 17 H-1169.

If you have a 10CG engine the one the left is for the (Tecalemet) Part number 37H-436. The one on the right is for (Purolator) part number 17H-1169.

To make things simple convert your engine over to the 1275 filter adapter and use the spin on and not worry about the hassle of trying to get the correct filter.
