That is a good filter, Napa 1773 is a cross reference. I use it and like the extra oil capacity.By the way, there is another filter that works on this engine and is 2" longer, which gives you better access and filter performance. It's the Baldwin BT251, and it still tucks up nicely but gives you better grip access, a little better oil cooling, and Baldwin is known for heavy truck industrial filters. They are available on Amazon for about $12.
Go to harbor freight and get this oil wrench! I had the same problem and this does the trick..You can get one like it from Hope Depot and its made by Huskey..
Performance tool makes spring load oil filter wrench, as you turn the filter off it turns the whole filter and tightens up at the same time. They offer two sizes small and large. About $18 each. Bin using then a long time. Ebay or amazon is selling then
