Hi all,

I offered to do an oil change on my sons "new 80 Series" and I purchased the oil and filter a Ryco Z9. He also bought the oil and filter but his filter was a Z418 half the size a a little cheaper (about $2.50). What is the correct filter? Both can fit.

Regards

JD

It is important to understand that the size of the filter, does not mean that it is good or bad.

The Z9 is very old tech, but still does a good job.

About 16 byears ago Toyota came out with new tech filter for their petrol cars, which were only half the size, but gave much better filtering.

Toyota puts out a brochure which help understand the changes.

I would suggest that the Z418 is the latest.

Regards

Col

Col,

Thanks for info. I thought that may be the case, as I used the Z9 on my Datsun 1600 back when I was single. Gee has it been that long ago.

120scruiser, My question still stands.

The first 80series up until the end of '92 had a 3F petrol motor which has the Z9 as the standard oil filter. If he has this motor, then he needs only to use a Z9.

Its always nice to have this sort of info in the question.

Cheers
Phil

I agree Phil.
The change date is 8/92 if my guestimation would be correct.
Now that I am at work I just checked my listings.
Z9 up until 4/96 and then Z418 from 4/96 on.

Hi 120s,

Yeah, just saw the same on the Ryco site. 4/96 is a wierd changeover. I thought it was 10/92 when the engines changed.

The other reason for asking which engine is that you can get an adaptor which allows the 1Hzzzz to be fitted with a Z9. Not a good idea, but people will do it.

Cheers
Phil

Went through this exercise a few months ago and the Z9 while an old product number is actually quite advanced. Do some checks you'll be very surpised at how good the Z9 is and how interchangable it is even for modern vehicles.
