They had cannisters on 283, 327, 348, 409 almost any back then. If you send in some pics we might be able to help

1956 - Full flow oil filtration was introduced, using a paper element filter in a canister that was mounted to a feature that was added to the cylinder block casting and machined for this purpose.

1957 - The displacement of the base V8 continued at 265 cubic inches but optional V8s were introduced with 283 cubic inch displacement.

1958 - Bosses for side motor mounts were added to the block casting and utilized for production mounts for this and all future model years. However the features for front motor mounts as used in 1955 - 1957 remained part of the block casting in this and future years. The 265 cubic inch version of the engine was discontinued.

1962 - The block's cylinder wall casting was revised to allow four inch bores and the 327 cubic inch version of the engine using this bore diameter and increased crankshaft stroke was introduced. 1968 - The main journal diameter was increased to 2.45 in (medium) from 2.30 in (small) and the connecting rod journal diameter was increased to 2.10 in from 2.00 in. This allowed the use of cast iron crankshafts as the previous parts were made of forged steel. The rod bolts were changed from 11/32 in. diameter to 3/8 inch. 


Additionally, the canister/sock style oil filter was now converted to use spin on filters. The oil fill location was moved from a tube on the front of the intake manifold to a cap on either side valve cover.

 my buddies late build 67 Nova had a "spin" on instead of canister

Carl, the Nova used a spin on from the first one produced with a V8. The Nova block is special in that it always had a spin on filter and a special casting with provision for the Z bar pivot ball in a unique location.


As far as the spin on filter question in general, unless I am forgetting some, the only V8 Chev/Canadian Pontiac engine to use a spin on filter before 1968 production was the Nova/Acadian block. All others, 396 and 427 included where cannister.

With that said, I have likely forgotten something and someone will prove me wrong!
