Ganahl's book talks about this stuff in detail. I think he says the 428
style, down-pointing filter is the stock replacement part from Ford, but who
knows if they still sell it.

If you use it on a 67-72 2wd, though, be aware that with the standard PH8A
oil filter there is not enough clearance for the filter to the crossmember
under the engine.

Apparently shorter oil filters are available to get around this problem, but
I don't know what number they are.
