1980 Shovelhead Oil Filter suggestions and opinions?
I have a 1980 FLT Shovel and the OEM oil filter is HARLEY-DAVIDSON 63796-77. I run Straight 60W all the time.
Of course I want the best possible oil filter to protect and keep the engine lasting.
I'm considering the HARLEY-DAVIDSON 63731-99 because of the 5 micron filtration.
I'm also considering the magnetic type filter, K&N, Drag Specialties, etc...
Basically, I would like to hear opinions and realities of which oil filter will be best for the engine and making it last.
So here is a list of alternative oil filters for my 1980 Shovel:

I appreciate any advice.
