    oil filter fitting on new oil pan

    I bought a 2002 Transam motor pull and had to replace the oil pan. I purchased a OE oil pan from one of the GM parts sites.

    I have bought 2 oil filters and they both are too small od thread diameter to screw on to the filter adapter.

    According to the parts list I should have a 13/16" x27 oil filter fitting but I don't. Mine is larger.

    Anyone know what could be going on?

    I am not sure of the new pan #. I bought it so long ago. I am going to check the old pan and see what size the fitting is. I may just remove it and put it in the new pan.

    There may be a metric thing going on here.

    PF48 or PF61should do the trick, if it doesnt go to dealer and buy the thread coupler for the filter for the application the motor came out of, it simply unscrews with an allen socket:-)

    I had the same issue when I went with a 07' LS2 oil pan from a C6 vette, the fitting on the pan was a larger diameter
