As you probably guessed by now i am going through the parts catalog getting ready to order a bunch of stuff for the engine. I got to Oil filters and it has at least 4 listed for 67. One of them says only correct if painted engine block color. Also listed is a decal to put on it. My question is if the oil filter was painted with the engine block why did they bother to add a sticker?

They didn't. And for your year originally it wasn't a decal or sticker. The service oil filter had the logo and information painted on the outside of the filter (both sides unlike many of the reproductions).

So you need a reproduction with the double crimp end and AUTOLITE debossed on the end. Sand or remove the reproduction printing on the side, if its there, then paint it to match the engine

Do you know of a source that sells them without the printing on them? I could buy one of the others and sand it off but if they sell them without the printing i thought they may be cheaper.

Don't recall anyone selling them without the printing though there were some or all of them were only printed on one side :(

I tried a search but i dont think the search function likes three letter or less words. :shrug: I know in the past it wouldnt take them i dont know if that changed since the last upgrade but i got results with only the word filter. If you remember the post maybe you know of other keywords to try?
