At the risk of getting hung up on terminology, but for the benefit of those who are new here, the civilian Power-Wagons from model WDX through model WM300 used removable cartridge filters originally, if equipped, as oil filtration was an option.

The removable cartridge (or element as I like to refer to it) slides inside the a canister, which in turn is sealed from above with a lid. Depending upon which vendor supplied the system found on our truck; Wix, Fram, Deluxe, Hastings, Purolator, etc., some of these removable cartridges consisted of cotton wrapped media (commonly called a sock filter) or a metal covered media.

The most common system found on civilian Power-Wagons was that produced by the Deluxe Products Corp. Their cartridge consisted of the cotton wrapped media. As of now, my research has found a total of 68 different filter manufactures who provided canisters that cross referenced to the Deluxe. The one USA made modern replacement that fits the best is the Baldwin JC-405.

Now if you are asking about the disposable self contained element where you unscrewed both the inlet and outlet lines, and discarded the entire old sealed canister and replaced it with a new one, these are somewhat rare to be found on a civilian Power-Wagon and replacements are no longer readily available.

If you are asking about the modern "spin-on" filters, they are available. But modifications have to be made to the engine including drilling and tapping the engine block. And if you are asking about a modern "spin-on" filter, I have to ask, Why?"
