Just wandering if anyone has had any problems obtaining a oil filter for a Nissan Terrano. I have a 1990 model with a TD27T. According to the Ryco catelog either the Z503 or Z416 filters should fit. I bought a Z503, and the thread was too small, so I then bought a Z416 (Repco doesn't like to exchange filters that are a little dirty). This time the thread was correct, but the anti-drainback valve protruded so far forward that it stopped the filter from screwing in by about 5mm. Anyway, after much reseach (and an angry Supercheap drone who could not understand that what's written in a catelog does not neccessarily translate into reality), I found a filter that fits perfectly. It's the Valvoline V049, it's exactly the same as a Z416, but the anti-drainback valved in recessed further into the filter...fitted like a glove.

Fitted a Z416 last saturday without a problem. Have used V049 in the past but now in Karratha relying on Repco for parts.

I've used the 416 the 502 and whatever valvoline equivalents are. They are both OK. The RYCO Z502 is the one for the vehicle not the Z503.
I change them every 5000K's so $17 from supercheap is OK unless they have a few at their 20% off sale days.
Reading your post again I think I get the valvoline equivalent of the Z416 which may be the VO49 but I also use the RYCO 502.
No problems getting either anyway.
Cheers

Might have had an old age brain fizz there ....
I think the Z502 was replaced by the Z416.

I use the Z503 on mine, but it's a T2. I did buy some cheaper filters but found the drain back valve didn't work all that well (took longer to build oil pressure first thing). I get mine through Big W when they are on special and buy up big with my wifes employee discount. Now she dosen't work there I suppose I will have to pay full price.:-(
