air filter fitting


I took the old one (Carquest #88144) with me into the NAPA store and they crossed it over to their # 6144...

it looked right and on the counter it even measured right (W x L x H)...

long story short is that I had to trim off some length to get the new one to fit inside the filter holder box thing.

That ain't right...
but at 9:30 in the dark it quickly became good enough.

Any thoughts on what I should be doing in the daylight to get right?

and guess what else?
GM12562085 UTK 6PK2550EB can't be read until you have the belt off...
and it is not a 103" serpentine belt like the 6PK2745 or K061080 are.
grumble grumble

InPursuit, No that's not a good thing ... go and find a Carquest filter and try it. You don't need any challenges when installing an air filter. It either fits the application or not.
