ACE 29.2 - V10 Oil Filter

Coach has 3500 miles on it. Time for the oil and filter to be changed. What kind of filter do i need for this thing? All the autozone books are vehicle specific. I doubt they have Thor listed in there.

Oil fill spout indicates 5W-20. Not sure how many quarts either.

Crawled under and saw a generic WHITE oil filter without any markings.

Books in the Thor briefcase don't indicate anything.

wow. Called Thor "tech support" 877-855-2867 and they were useless. Gave him the VIN and he said "thats a ford chassis, you need to call ford for that information". He also went on to indicate that the briefcase should have had a pamphlet or something with the information.

He gave me the Ford number: 1-800-444-3311

Ford is going to "call me back". Seems they are busy at the moment.

Motorcraft (Ford) FL820S. Oil 5w-20w, I use Ford Full synthetic, but their blend is good also. The oil choice is yours. The quanity is 6 qts. Go to a Ford dealer that handles big trucks and they can give you all the info on your V-10. Other Filters, WIX-51773, NAPA-1773, FLEETGUARD-LF697. Check all the numbers, as I have had these awhile, some may have changed.

Awesome. Thanks for the information.

The FORD tech called me back and indicated similar info. He told me "7 quarts of 5W20 synthetic blend and FL820S filter".

I'm heading to the parts store to get his crossed off the TO-DO list.

I saw the FL820S also when you select the V-10 under F450 or F550 at Autozone
